Subject Re: Lets use gshell for all startup stuff
Date Fri, 19 Sep 2008 16:17:02 GMT
Agree that everything should use GShell.

The point of G4093 was to make the scripts in the 2.1.x release 
consistent in how Java was used (some scripts used JRE/JAVA_HOME while 
others used whatever was on the PATH.)  I'm fine in changing this for 
2.2, especially given there will only be one way (GShell) for 
starting/stopping the server, launching the deployer and wsgen tools and 
for client apps.
