Dear Wiki user,

The "DerbyWindowsService" page has been changed by vogella:

  == Pointers to information on establishing a Windows Service ==
- The following links supply information about running programs as a Windows Service.  Though
I've seen requests for this information on several occasions I have yet to see a follow-up
post that lists the steps involved in setting Derby as a Service using any of the tools referred
to.  I am hoping that someone with experience using these or other tools will post the steps
they used and any 'gotchas' they discovered. I am not a Windows Admin type so cannot speak
from experience.  Based on emails read there are at least three programs that help establish
a program as a Windows Service: {{{srvany.exe}}}, {{{Java *Service* Launcher (JSL)}}} or {{{Java
*Service* Wrapper by Tanuki Software}}} - there are probably others.

- The email link (nabble.com) leads to the response to a request for information on setting
Derby up to run as a Service under the Windows Operating system.  The thread lists three possible
programs that can help in setting up the service.  The links from the messages are included
below for convenience.  My thanks to those who contributed to this email thread. 
+ The usage of the standard windows programs (instsrv.EXE and srvany.exe) is described in
the tutorial below.
