Subject RE: Making Tomcat 3.2 A Service On Win 2000 ( using jdk 1.3.0_02 )

Thanks.
 
I just got it.
 
I set a "JDK_HOME" environ variable ( no spaces in the path ),
I moved the exe to the TOMCAT_HOME\bin
I moved their tomcat32Install.bat file to TOMCAT_HOME\bin
I ran the install file
I went to services ( windows 2000 ) and there is no "tomcat" there.
 
Any ideas what I didn't do?
 
Thanks in advance
 
Steve

Steve,
 
I recently set Tomcat up as a service on an NT box using JavaService :
 
http://www.alexandriasc.com/software/JavaService/documentation.html
<http://www.alexandriasc.com/software/JavaService/documentation.html> 
 
It's pretty straight forward to set up and has been working for a week now
with no probs whatsoever. JavaService was originally inspired by Windows
service issues with Tomcat so is an ideal solution.
 
Later, Tim.

Hi;
 
I found some instructions at jakarta.apache.org for making tomcat a service:
 
http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-3.3-doc/NT-Service-howto.html
<http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-3.3-doc/NT-Service-howto.html> 
 
It didn't answer some questions I would like to know before I begin.
 
1. The instructions mention setting TOMCAT_HOME in wrapper.properties.
    Lets say this is c:\tomcat.....do I put it inq uotes?  Do I use the "\"
as a path seperator or a "/"?
 
2. The instructions mention that there is a bug in jdk1.3 that if you follow
thei nstructions to make
    tomcat a service and you stop the service no clean up will happen.  Is
there anything bad about
    that?  What will not happen?   Does this bug also exist in jdk1.3.0_02
?
 
Thanks in advance
