Subject Re: Someone successfully Installed Tomcat as Windows Service with StartMode=java or StartMode=exe?
Date Fri, 24 Feb 2006 19:30:39 GMT
Hi Mladen,

thanks very much for the response! I had the last week much work to do 
but todady i took some time to test out the solution on my local Windows 
XP SP1 box. I'm sorry to say that i didn't got it working. Here are the 

Windows XP SP1
JDK 1.5
Tomcat 5.5.15

I switched the mode to "Java" using the Tomcat-GUI.
I've used the following arguments in the Startup-Arguments Tab:

-classpath C:\Programme\Tomcat5.5\bin\bootstrap.jar

After starting the service i get the following windows exception from 
Service Runner:

szAppName : tomcat5.exe     szAppVer :     szModName : 
szModVer : 5.1.2600.1106     offset : 0000234c    

I also tried setting -LogLevel=debug but this also reveals no more 
informations. The service log says:

[2006-02-24 20:08:10] [info] Debuging Service...
[2006-02-24 20:08:10] [info] Starting service...
[2006-02-24 20:08:20] [info] Running Service...
[2006-02-24 20:08:20] [info] Run service finished.
[2006-02-24 20:08:20] [info] Procrun finished.

Do you have any more ideas how i can track down the problem? Shall i 
write to the Commons-Daemon Mailing list?
I've additionally tried setting the JavaHome in the arguments field.
I took a short look at the commons-daemon sourcecode but since i'm no 
C-expert (escpecially on windows) it would take me much time to get into 
this topic.

If there's a way i can provide more information to solve this issue 
please let me know.

But anyway, thanks very much for your answer.

best regards
