> Our particular use-case requires that JSVC not automatically restart the daemon if the
child process throws a fatal error (e.g. OutOfMemoryError) or similarly the JVM aborts (bug
> In any case the attached patch goes slightly further and provides a '-restarts' option
which can be set to:
> -1 (infinite, also the default)
> 0 (one-shot mode) up to (MAX_INT-1) fixed restart count and specific to the platform.
> The patch is just an example of how it could be done.
> Note that the intention here is to limit the restart count for successive fatal errors
- not for controlled restarts initiated by the administrator via a signal.
