Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-501) launchd plist for Mac OS X needs cleanup

launchd plist for Mac OS X needs cleanup
----------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-501
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-501
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Infrastructure
    Affects Versions: 0.11
         Environment: Mac OS X 10.6, Snow Leopard
            Reporter: Per Ejeklint
            Priority: Minor


The provided org.apache.couchdb.plist for launchd contains the flag OnDemand set to true,
as well as KeepAlive. OnDemand was deprecated in 10.4 and replaced by KeepAlive which is much
more powerful. As a result, launchd will NOT restart CouchDB on Snow Leopard after it has
been stopped with launchctl stop org.apache.couchdb, as is stated in the README. A manual
start or reboot is needed.

Solution: just remove the OnDemand tag from the plist and all is happy happy again.

As a side note: if on-demand loading is really what's wanted, launchd needs more information.
There must be information about which socket launchd should monitor, and keeping that in sync
with the port number people choose for couchdb seems just way too much work.
