Subject Re: Anybody using Cassandra/DataStax Distribution with Java Service Wrapper?
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2012 00:10:16 GMT

IMHO, Tanuki and the like are fabulous in a Windows environment (e.g., to install something
as a "Service"), but on a *nix, you're better off to just come up with your own variant of
the standard shell script and hook it into the OS lifecycle in the usual way.

Java Service Wrapper ( that does
a lot more than simply launching a Java process, for example it monitors the JVM and even
restarts failed/hung JVMs. Is anyone using it with Cassandra?
