Subject RE: How to auto start tomcat on boot of NT
Date Mon, 03 Apr 2000 11:14:26 GMT
  Autoexec.bat isn't used by NT - it's just maintained for backward
  Normally you want to run background processes on NT as services.
  Tomcat doesn't run as a service - (I'm not sure if there are plans to do
this in the future - it would be nice) but there is a tool you can use in
the NT4 resource kit to allow you to run any program as a service - I'm not
sure how well this would work with tomcat as I've never tried it - I suspect
it won't work too well.....
  If you look through the tomcat.bat file you'll probably have to hardcode
the envronmental variables and call tomcat straight from the java executable
instead of using a batch file/
  The utility is called SRVANY.

  Good luck !

  Subject: How to auto start tomcat on boot of NT

  Where does one place calls to start tomcat during boot of a NT machine?
  I've tried autoexec.bat but this did not appear to work.  Since this will
be running on a server, placing the bat in a 'startup' folder is not an
option, as no one will be logged in.
