Subject RE: Starting tomcat from init scripts (HP/UX)
Date Fri, 08 Aug 2003 07:54:05 GMT
Have a look at /usr/share/doc/start_up.txt or /usr/share/doc/start_up.ps on a HP-UX 11.00 machine

for details of how to write a startup script conforming to HP-UX's standards (for issuing
messages 
at startup and shutdown via the 'start_msg' and 'stop_msg' parameters, honouring the settings
in 
/etc/rc.config.d etc...). 

You can use any of the scripts in /sbin/init.d as a basis - modify one as appropriate and

get it to simply call catalina.sh. 

We also modified our catalina.sh to check which userid was calling the script. If it
was root it would sudo to the non-privileged user that Tomcat ran under ('tomcat'). If
it was userid 'tomcat' calling it it would simply continue. If it was anyone else, it
would exit with an error message. This way we get Tomcat started as a non-privileged user

starting automatically on boot.

Regards,
Morgan
