Subject RE: Tomcat on Windows: advantages of running as a service?
Date Wed, 12 Oct 2005 11:21:51 GMT


Running from a service makes it a no brainer to start up tomcat when you reboot the machine
as it does it automatically.

Disadvantages I would see is that it hides the console and makes it difficult to changes options
like JAVA_OPTS.

The "net start <service name>" and "net stop <service name>" commands
will allow you to stop and start Windows services from the command line
(and thus from a batch script).  You can get the service name from the
"Services" property window.
