Subject Using the bin/ script on ubuntu.
Date Tue, 30 Jul 2013 09:58:54 GMT
could someone point me to a good source how to use that (with ubuntu and
Tomcat 7)?

The internet is full of selfmade /etc/init.d/ scripts, but mostly it isn't
used it as a real service (jsvc). Keyword: bin/**
Even the books "Apache Tomcat 7" and "Tomcat 7 Essentials" are not talking
about it.

On the docs I've found this [0]:

tar xvfz commons-daemon-native.tar.gz
cd commons-daemon-1.0.x-native-src/unix
cp jsvc ../..
cd ../..

But what about:
* set env. variables (maybe:, /etc/profiles?)
* adjust the heap size
* logging to the right directory (like: /var/log/tomcat/...)
* specifying the User: "tomcat"

Best Regards,
