Subject Re: How to use -security when running as a service under Windows.
Date Thu, 03 Nov 2005 19:26:33 GMT
Ok, as I said to my boss:
1. OpenVMS is still stuck on Java 1.4
2. OpenVMS is still stuck on Tomcat 4.1
3. OpenVMS does not allow 'tail' access to log files!
4. Can't run JBoss, Apache 2, etc.
5. JVM on VMS has more bugs than a roach-infested sewer.
6. .jar files have to be "steamed" before the can run on OVMS.

I wanted to go to RedHat Linux but unfortunately there is not enough Linux expertise in my
company (we're a small shop) so it had to be a hardened Windows 2003 box instead.

  You're going from OpenVMS to Windows?!?!? WHY?
  Why go from the most secure system on the planet to the most exposed? 
  Just wondering?

  I am currently running Tomcat under OpenVMS by calling catalina.bat with
  the -security switch to allow it to connect to several RMI servers.

  Now that I am moving this app. to windows I want to be able to call the
  same switch from my service-driven installation of Tomcat 4.1.
  Unfortunately when I go to the properties of the service itself
  everything is greyed out so that I cannot add any switches. Also the
  program it is running is /bin/tomcat.exe.

  What can I do to get this to run with -security option?

  Thanks in advance,
