Subject Adding Support to Fedora 16 for Starting tomcat with jsvc
Date Mon, 12 Dec 2011 02:43:16 GMT
Currently, Fedora 16 does not support starting/stopping tomcat with
jsvc.  systemd starts tomcat directly using an unprivileged account.
This means the only options supported out-of-the-box are: 1) using
something like apache mod_proxy as a front-end, or 2) using an iptables
entry to forward port 80 to port 8080.  If one wanted to use jsvc, one
would have had to manually manipulate the scripts, which could get
overwritten in the next update.

Thus, I created a patch where systemd would start jsvc, which in turn
would start tomcat.  If you believe this to be beneficial, I encourage
