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

I recently set Tomcat up as a service on an NT box using JavaService :

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.

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


  I found some instructions at for making tomcat a

  It didn't answer some questions I would like to know before I begin.

  1. The instructions mention setting TOMCAT_HOME in
      Lets say this is c:\ 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
