Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-4394) Run Geronimo as a Windows service out of box
Date Wed, 17 Dec 2008 04:56:44 GMT


Jarek Gawor commented on GERONIMO-4394:

So all you need to do with the plugin is just install the *.exe and *.bat files into $GERONIMO_HOME/bin
directory? If so, put these files into src/main/resources/bin directory and just add <copy-file
dest-dir="bin">bin</copy-file> entry in the car-maven-plugin in your pom.xml. See
framework/configs/plugin for an example.

> 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.
