Subject Running Tomcat 6 as a service
Date Tue, 12 Jan 2010 04:10:39 GMT
I am using JRockit as my java runtime.  When I manually start Tomcat, I have no problems with
it.  However, when I try to run Tomcat as a service with JRockit as my java runtime, I get
an error that says that it cannot start the service.  I looked in the service.bat file and
I think that I may have found where this error is happening.  The following lines are in the
batch file

rem Set the server jvm from JAVA_HOME
set PR_JVM=%JAVA_HOME%\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll
if exist "%PR_JVM%" goto foundJvm
rem Set the client jvm from JAVA_HOME
set PR_JVM=%JAVA_HOME%\jre\bin\client\jvm.dll
if exist "%PR_JVM%" goto foundJvm

JRockit does not have these entries in their java runtime directories.  These are specific
to Sun's implementation.  The interesting thing is that I also run an Apache Geronimo serice
using JRockit as the java runtime and it runs great.  Can these lines be omitted?  Are they
crucial for Apache Tomcat to run as a service without issue?
