Subject Re: Zookeeper as Service
Date Thu, 09 Jan 2014 16:18:24 GMT

From your email I gather your main concern is starting zookeeper on server startups.

You may want to look at these non-native service oriented options too:
Create  a script( cmd or bat) to start ZK on server bootup. This method may not restart Zk
if Zk crashes(not the server).
Create C# commad line program that starts on server bootup(see above) that uses the .Net
System.Diagnostics.Process.Start method to start Zk on sever start and monitor the Zk process
via a loop. Restart when Zk process crash or "hang". I prefer this method. There might be
a Java equivalent of this. There are many exmaples avaialble on the web.

There are various ways to 'servicify' (yes that may not be an actual 
word) executable applications on Windows. The venerable SrvAny is one 
such option as is the newer
 nssm.exe (Non-Sucking Service Manager).

Bear in mind that a Windows Service doesn't operate quite the same way 
with regard to stdout and stderr which may mean any error messages end 
up in a black hole, with you simply
 getting something unhelpful 'service 
failed to start' error messages from Windows itself if something goes 
wrong. The 'working directory' is another thing that needs careful 
setting up.
