Subject jsvc creates pid file owned by root
Date Thu, 10 Apr 2008 09:16:44 GMT


I can start and stop Tomcat 5.5 with the jsvc program but the problem is
that the pid file is created with permissions 600 and owned by root.
I want to be able to read the pid file to check if the Tomcat process is up
and running 
and also for other purposes.

Is it possible to make the pid file be owned by the user that runs Tomcat or
have the permissions to be set to 666?
