Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DERBY-187) Starting derby network server as a service in Win OS
Date Wed, 27 Apr 2005 21:26:08 GMT
Hi,

I have been looking at making Network Server available as a Windows service. 

According to Apache Daemons project, I should use procrun to make a
java application as a windows service. But I haven't been able to
locate the procrun exectable, After little research on the web, I
found that in the absence of procrun executable on Windows, people
have been using tomcat to install their java applications as a
service. I will start investigating into it but if someone has any
input on this, please post it to the list. It will certainly help the
ball rolling on this issue.

thanks,
Mamta

for it.  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:
