Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-4394) Run Geronimo as a Windows service out of box
Date Sat, 20 Dec 2008 01:12:44 GMT


Jarek Gawor commented on GERONIMO-4394:

I committed the patch to trunk (revision 728200) and branches/2.1 (revision 728203). I modified
the patch slightly: 1) I changed the batch script to display JRE_HOME instead of JAVA Runtime
to match the other scripts and since really $JRE_HOME will be used anyway, and 2) I dropped
the 'osservice' module and just put 'procrun' module directly under plugins. Thanks for the
Also, I think it would be great to have some instructions (like a README file in svn or somewhere)
how to exactly recreate the exe file. Can you provide that info if possible?

> 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 -

>  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.
