Subject Re: status from shell script (System V starup)
Date Tue, 18 Nov 2008 17:49:44 GMT
Cool!  Maybe you'd like to open a JIRA and contribute your script once 
you're done?  :-)

For the status, maybe you could try something like -

   ps_log=`mktemp /var/tmp/geronimo-ps.log`
   ps auxww >"$ps_log"
   if grep " -Dorg.apache.geronimo.base.dir=.*server.jar" "$ps_log" 
 >/dev/null 2>/dev/null ; then
   rm -f "$ps_log"
   test "$geronimo_is_running" = "true"
