A long time ago, I think JSVC was used. But it has been replaced with Tanuki for about 4 years

You can probably have a look at the following projects:
- apacheds-service
- apacheds-wrapper

These projects contains all the code to start/stop ApacheDS as a service. The Tanuki service
wrapper implementation is separate and you could probably get some inspiration to port it
to JSVC.

What was the problem?
Tanuki is still used on the milestones releases of ApacheDS (2.0.0-M1). Any issue with this
version too?

I do it with Jboss 5.1 Tomcat 6.x and Apache James 3.

It could be interesting to evaluate JSVC as a replacement for Tanuki.
Especially now that we're stuck at a given version (due to a licensing change, not being compatible
with the Apache License) and this version is no longer maintained.

Please have a look at the two projects I mentioned above.

Yeah, I guess so.
You will then need to insert them in the server configuration via an LDIF import or directly
editing entries with Studio.

We're still working on it. There's no ETA at the moment, but, probably later this year...

Can you elaborate more on this?
