Subject Re: Run Geronimo as a Windows service
Date Tue, 04 Nov 2008 14:36:33 GMT
En, we have an updated doc for 2.0 here:
http://cwiki.apache.org/GMOxDOC20/configuring-geronimo-as-a-windows-service.html.
And if we provide the solution based on Apache Commons Daemon, surely we
need to update the doc.

I've created a JIRA here:https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-4394.
Welcome your further comments.
