Subject Re: Startup time delay in Ubuntu server
Date Tue, 06 Jan 2009 03:29:06 GMT

We are still on the 7.10 Gutsy release.

You should be able to locate what module it is that takes time to start 
by looking in the geronimo.out file. If your issue is related to uddi 
and a web service (WSDL like my issue is) maybe the service is not 
released correctly during Geronimo server shutdown prior to restart but 
this is speculation on my part.

Maybe someone with deeper knowledge of the inner workings of uddi can 
shed some light on this?
