Subject Re[2]: Starting Tomcat 4 as an NT service
Date Tue, 09 Apr 2002 19:24:24 GMT
Hello rsudama,

Just a note.  I've posted this answer twice before on this list.
Please search the archives because it *has* been answered and I gave
the solution in the email and didn't ask anyone to search anywhere for
the answer.  Anyway, here it is again:

I distilled the following from this article:

Assuming you have all your environment variables set, just copy+paste
the following to a command line...

To Install Catalina Service:

%CATALINA_HOME%\bin\tomcat.exe -install Apache-Catalina %JAVA_HOME%\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll
-Djava.class.path=%CATALINA_HOME%\bin\bootstrap.jar;%JAVA_HOME%\lib\tools.jar -Dcatalina.home=%CATALINA_HOME%
%CATALINA_OPTS% -Xrs -start org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap -params start -stop org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap
-params stop -out %CATALINA_HOME%\logs\stderr.log

To Uninstall Catalina Service:

%CATALINA_HOME%\bin\tomcat.exe -uninstall Apache-Catalina

Now, check in your Services applet and the "Apache-Catalina" service
should be there.
