Subject status from shell script (System V starup)
Date Wed, 12 Nov 2008 23:57:28 GMT
I've written a bash shell script to start and stop geronimo, for use  
with System V startup (scripts in /etc/rc.d/init.d/).

Start and stop are straightforward, as the scripts in $GERONIMO_HOME/ 
bin/ just need to be called, but status is less obvious.  The best  
I've come up with so far is

su -l -c "$GERONIMO_HOME/bin/ -u $GERONIMO_ADMIN -p  

but it's not satisfactory:
1) if geronimo is not running, it produces a stack dump, when all I  
want is a simple message indicating geronimo is not running

2) I have to include the geronimo administrator password in the  
script  (of course, it also needs to be in the script so geronimo can  
be shut down).

Can anyone suggest something better?   If geronimo is running, what  
would be best is a short list of all the ports it's listening on.   
(Then one could use netstat or whatever to see if one can actually  
access them).
