Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-4394) Run Geronimo as a Windows service out of box
Date Tue, 04 Nov 2008 14:36:48 GMT
Run Geronimo as a Windows service out of box

                 Key: GERONIMO-4394
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: New Feature
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: commands
         Environment: Windows platforms
            Reporter: Jack Cai

Although there is already an option provided by the Java Service Wrapper, some users are more
interested in seeing something similar to what is provided by Tomcat. Provided that we can
easily take the technology from Tomcat (, I'm
keen to implement this same thing for Geronimo. The advantage of using Apache Commons procrun
is that -

 1. Out-of-box experience, no need to download and install a third party component;
 2. Tray icon that further improves usability.

Eventually we would think to provide this "run as a service" capability for Linux/Unix platforms,
but Windows would be a good start.
