Subject Tomcat 4.1.26 on Win2000
Date Thu, 06 Nov 2003 21:23:57 GMT
I am running Tomcat ver 4.1.27 on a Win2000 platform.  Is there an easy way to set up tomcat
as a service without the whole wrapper thing?  I'm new at this and looking for the simplest
I'm also not a great expert on the NT side!!

You can set up a scheduled task or install Tomcat as a service.  I'm
pretty sure the Tomcat 3.3 binary on Windows is a service wrapper, so
you can invoke Tomcat.exe and supply the parameters to create a service.
You may need to edit the registry manually to set up classpaths and
other variables your app needs.  Not sure what you mean about Microsoft
and server daemons...I have many Tomcats starting up automatically as
services on many Win2k machines.  Not under IIS, but I think that is
irrelevant, could be wrong.
