Subject [jira] Updated: (GERONIMO-4394) Run Geronimo as a Windows service out of box
Date Wed, 17 Dec 2008 09:46:44 GMT


Jack Cai updated GERONIMO-4394:

    Attachment: GERONIMO-4394_Jack.patch

Thanks Jarek for your advice! Now I've come out with a more impact version. I can successfully
install the car to a running server to add those new commands into its bin dir. The only myth
left is that after installation, the car in the server's repo is not a car archive, but extracted

I've created a patch for the 2.1.x branch. It can be easily applied to 2.2 branch if all occurances
of "2.1.4-SNAPSHOT" are replaced with "2.2-SNAPSHOT". The patch does not include the 2 binary
exe files though. I'm not sure about the convention of how to add them (in the patch or separately?),
so I just attach them separately here. They should both be put into the plugins/osservice/geronimo-procrun/src/main/resources/bin/

> 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.
