Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3617) Consider adding start scripts.
Date Thu, 12 Jul 2012 12:17:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-3617?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13412728#comment-13412728

Uwe Schindler commented on SOLR-3617:
-------------------------------------

As fan of Ubuntu, please also add a upstart config (/etc/init/solr.conf), thats much easier
to write than stupid shell script with the well known start|stop|... switch :-)

> I've always found that starting Solr with java -jar start.jar is a little odd if you
are not a java guy, but I think there are bigger pros than looking less odd in shipping some
start scripts.
> Not only do you get a cleaner start command:
> sh solr.sh or solr.bat or something
> But you also can do a couple other little nice things:
> * it becomes fairly obvious for a new casual user to see how to start the system without
reading doc.
> * you can make the working dir the location of the script - this lets you call the start
script from another dir and still have all the relative dir setup work.
> * have an out of the box place to save startup params like -Xmx.
> * we could have multiple start scripts - say solr-dev.sh that logged to the console and
default to sys default for RAM - and also solr-prod which was fully configured for logging,
pegged Xms and Xmx at some larger value (1GB?) etc.
> You would still of course be able to make the java cmd directly - and that is probably
what you would do when it's time to run as a service - but these could be good starter scripts
to get people on the right track and improve the initial user experience.
