Subject Shutdown scripts
Date Fri, 11 Nov 2005 15:21:23 GMT
The shutdown scripts are a step forward in usability over manually 
killing the java process via CTL-C.  While quite simple, CTL-C does not 
seem very user friendly and should not be the default mechanism.

However, it does seem strange that a user needs to open a new window to 
shutdown the server.   Seems like the initial startup command should 
return the  command prompt back to the user so that shutdown can be 
issued from the same window.  One way to accomplish this is to have the 
startup script launch a new window that controls the java process (and 
output the startup messages) while the initial prompt is returned to the 
user.  This would allow the shutdown to be issued from the initial window.

Also, if we ever support sharing one binary installation that can start 
multiple instances of geronimo (each with it's own unique configuration) 
then we will also likely need this behavior.
