Take a look at the following site. It gives you a feeler of how to do
it. Once you run the batch file, it updates the Win2000 registry entries
for you. From there you can play with it.

But the only catch running tomcat as service with the start up
parameters is -verbose:gc does not print the Garbage collection entries
in either stdout or stderr. I have'nt figured out where it is printing

Subject: Startup parameters

OK, one quick question that I'm sure anybody here but me can answer.

I am running Tomcat as a service on windows 2000 server.  I want to set
JVM parameters when tomcat starts (things like -server, -Xmx, -Xms,
Where would I go about making these changes?  I've looked through the
catalina.bat file, but is this even executed when tomcat is run as a
service?  according to the services applet in the control panel, the
runs tomcat.exe.  Does this in turn call the startup script? Or do I
need to
pass the parameters using -jvm_option to tomcat.exe?  As an aside, is
anything that can be done to optimize tomcat for execution on a
multi-processor system?
