Subject Re: Making Tomcat 3.2 A Service On Win 2000 ( using jdk 1.3.0_02 )
Date Fri, 06 Jul 2001 18:49:43 GMT
Are you sure there are no problems with jdk1.3.1?  The main problem I 
found with 1.3.0 was that it shut down when you logged off. I found the 
same problem in 1.3.1. The "fix" is to add -Xsa to the execution line 
that starts Java in Tomcat.

As for making Tomcat a service, I found the jk_nt_service.exe (zipped 
up) in the jakarta downloads. I thought that was the standard way of 
making it into a service. Is this what is causing the shutdown problem? 
ShouldI be using a different method?
