Subject RE: RHEL and Tomcat startup/shutdown scripts
Date Mon, 13 Aug 2007 12:19:12 GMT
Thanks for the reply Ben!

Unfortunately due to needing Java 1.5+ (current distro gcj is Java 1.4.2
equivalent) for CAS (http://www.ja-sig.org/products/cas/) and Tomcat 6
(unicast member discovery via static members), I am unable to reply upon
Redhat's Tomcat 5.5 package.  As such, I have to use the precompiled
binaries of Sun's Java 1.6 and Apache's Tomcat 6.0.

I have no problems compiling and using the jsvc daemon for Tomcat.  I'm
just at a loss about whether that is the right route or not.

Thanks,

Hi Andrew,

Redhat package tomcat 5.5 as an RPM (or JPackage package it and Redhat
distribute it).

This RPM comes with well written init scripts, creates a tomcat user
etc. I would recommend you use this.

# yum install tomcat5 

Cheers, Ben
