Subject Run Geronimo as a Windows service
Date Sun, 02 Nov 2008 15:15:20 GMT
Hi all,

I learnt that some of our users are interested in running Geronimo as a
Windows service. Although there is already an option provided by the Java
Service Wrapper, they are more interested in seeing something similar to
what is provided by Tomcat. I searched the mail achive and found this old
discussion [1], which didn't reach a decision. Provided that we can easily
take the technology from Tomcat [2], I'm keen to implement this 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
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. What do others
think? I'd volunteer to do this job if you think it's worth doing.
