Subject tomcat service installation problems
Date Tue, 10 Aug 2004 19:10:25 GMT

We had been using tomcat 5.0.16 previously, and were able to successfully
deploy it as a windows service (within an InstallShield sequence) using
the "tomcat.exe //IS//" syntax.  We recently upgraded to tomcat 5.0.27
however (which seems to use a later version of commons-daemon) and are
encountering the following service installation problems:

* dash or underscore in service name causes service installation to fail
* "--Startup auto" parameter is ignored (ends up as manual instead)

There were other changes I had to make to the service installation
parameters to migrate from 5.0.16 to 5.0.27 as well (java parameters),
however these two issues remain.

Any suggestions are welcome.
