Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-4394) Run Geronimo as a Windows service out of box
Date Fri, 06 Mar 2009 02:57:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-4394?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12679480#action_12679480
] 

Jack Cai commented on GERONIMO-4394:
------------------------------------

You can use the geronimosrvw.exe tool to edit the startup/shutdown arguments.  Alternatively
you can also use the geronimosrv.exe command line to do that. See Apache Commons Daemon doc:
http://commons.apache.org/daemon/procrun.html

You can see the tool call java.exe directly instead of geronimo.bat.

> 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 (http://commons.apache.org/daemon/procrun.html),
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.
