  +    <p>Tomcat can be run as a daemon using the jsvc tool from the 
  +       commons-daemon project. Source tarballs for jsvc are included with the
  +       Tomcat binaries, and need to be compiled. Building jsvc requires
  +       a C ANSI compiler (such as GCC), GNU Autoconf, and a JDK.</p>
  +    <p>Before running the script, the <code>JAVA_HOME</code> environment
  +       variable should be set to the base path of the JDK. Alternately, when
  +       calling the <code>./configure</code> script, the path of the JDK may
  +       be specified using the <code>--with-java</code> parameter, such as
  +       <code>./configure --with-java=/usr/java</code>.</p>
  +    <p>Using the following commands should result in a compiled jsvc binary,
  +       located in the <code>$CATALINA_HOME/bin</code> folder. This assumes
  +       that GNU TAR is used, and that <code>CATALINA_HOME</code> is an 
  +       environment variable pointing to the base path of the Tomcat 
  +       installation.</p>
  +    cd $CATALINA_HOME/bin
  +    tar xvfz jsvc.tar.gz
  +    cd jsvc
  +    autoconf
  +    ./configure
  +    make
  +    cp jsvc ..
  +    cd ..
  +    <p>Tomcat can then be run as a daemon using the following commands.</p>
  +    cd $CATALINA_HOME
  +    ./bin/jsvc -Djava.endorsed.dirs=./common/endorsed -cp ./bin/bootstrap.jar \
  +        -outfile ./logs/catalina.out -errfile ./logs/catalina.err \
  +        org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap
  +    <p>jsvc has other useful parameters, such as <code>-user</code> which

  +       causes to switch to another user after the daemon initialization is
  +       complete. This allows, for example, running Tomcat as a non priviledged
  +       user while still being able to use privileged ports. 
  +       <code>jsvc --help</code> will return the full jsvc usage 
  +       information. In particular, the <code>-debug</code> option is useful
  +       to debug issues running jsvc.</p>
