Subject how to use procrun (in Tomcat 5) to run daemon
Date Wed, 05 Apr 2006 04:10:07 GMT
Hi everybody
    I try to use commons daemon which be found in
and I got an example from
I use tomcat on windows xp, so I have to use procrun (tomcat 5 has built in procrun). I cannot
start that java daemon. I got message

"Windows could not start the SimpleDaemon on Local Computer. For more information, review
the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and
refer to service-specific err code 0."

here is my bat to install service

tomcat5 //IS//SimpleDaemon --Description="Demonstrares how to write and register service"
--DisplayName="SimpleDaemon" --install="C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat
5.5.9\bin\tomcat5.exe" --User="v" --Password="K" --Jvm="%JAVA_HOME%\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll"
--JvmOptions="-Xrs" --Classpath="simpleDaemon.jar;%CLASSPATH%" --StartPath="C:\Documents and
Settings\vacharaphol\My Documents\temp\encode\SimpleDaemon" --StartClass="org.apache.commons.daemon.SimpleDaemon"
--StartMethod="Main" --StartParams="start" --StartMode="jvm" --StopClass="org.apache.commons.daemon.SimpleDaemon"
--StopMethod="Main" -- StopParams="stop" --StopMode="jvm" --LogPath="C:\Documents and Settings\vacharaphol\My
Documents\temp\encode\SimpleDaemon" --LogPrefix="SimpleDaemon" --LogLevel="INFO" --StdOutput="C:\Documents
and Settings\vacharaphol\My Documents\temp\encode\SimpleDaemon\out.txt" --StdError="C:\Documents
and Settings\vacharaphol\My Documents\temp\encode\SimpleDaemon\err.txt"

    I'm not sure StartMethod should be "Main" or not. Daemon Interface has no method main,
and I found Tomcat Bootstrap has main but noted "use for test only". Example for use Tomcat
as Service in Windows leave StartMethod which is "main" by default. Who have ever used commons-daemon
with procrun (in tomcat) please give me you comment or command line sample.

    Thank you
