Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DERBY-187) Starting derby network server as a service in Win OS
Date Wed, 13 Apr 2005 05:33:41 GMT
Hi,

I have been looking around on the Jakarta Commons Daemon page
(http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/daemon/) to find out how a java
application can be installed as a service on Windows. The page talks
about using procrun for Win32 platforms but I see no binaries for the
utility. The site has binaries page but nothing for Windows platform.

I looked around a little bit on the web to find out more about procrun
but have only encountered some success stories about other 2 products
in the area namely
1)JavaService by ObjectWeb Open Source Middleware javaservice.objectweb.org 
2)Java Service Wrapper by Tanuki Software
http://wrapper.tanukisoftware.org/doc/english/introduction.html

I have no idea about the licensing terms of the 2 products above but
in the absence of generally available binaries for Jakarta Common
Daemon project for Windows, it seems like we might need to look at
other options.

If anybody knows more about this, please send in your thoughts. In the
mean time I will explore JavaService and Java Service Wrapper.

 The easiest way to do this would be to provide a registry key file for Derby Network Server
and provide instructions on how to install it as a Windows service using instsrv and srvany.
However, we obviously can't redistribute those two utilities, but it would be nice to provide
all the parts to the solution. So, a little searching turned up this public domain srvany
replacement:
