Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-187) Starting derby network server as a service in Win OS
Date Thu, 04 Jan 2007 07:07:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-187?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12462154

Andrew McIntyre commented on DERBY-187:

It's been a while but I finally got around to looking into it. It appears even the commons-dev
folks don't have any forthcoming answers as to why there's no Win32 download for the Commons


I think at this point it should be sufficient to point users to the Tomcat distributions and
provide some basic instructions on how to extract, rename, and configure tomcat5.exe to run
the network server as a service on Windows. These instructions could be added to the FAQ and/or
the wiki and then DERBY-187 can be closed.

>                 Key: DERBY-187
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-187
>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Services
>    Affects Versions:
>         Environment: OS will be only any flavour of Windows.
>            Reporter: Amit Handa
>            Priority: Minor
> The Derby Network Server Database could be started/stopped as a service in Windows OS.
> This may involve updating the win registry. Further work needs to be done to understand
what all will it require to do such a thing.
> I am putting below Andrew McIntyre's comments if they can help in getting a solution
to this problem.
> If you would like to see this functionality added, please add a JIRA entry 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:

> I haven't tried it, but I suggest trying it out to see how well it works.
