Subject Re: Question: How to start Derby from a remote address
Date Tue, 06 Mar 2007 00:43:15 GMT

I believe that you can start/stop a service remotely on Windows NT+ if 
the target macine is running Netsvc.exe 
(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/166819). One idea would be to logon to 
the remote machine and register the database startup script as a Windows 
service. From that point on, you can use NetSvc to remotely manage your 
Derby Network server. You may also want to consider using 
JavaServiceWrapper (http://wrapper.tanukisoftware.org) since it provides 
a clean way to "shutdown" Java processes when stopped by the NT service 
manager. The last thing you want is for your database to be corrupted by 
forcibly killing the process.
