I am running Sun Java System Application Server 8 (Platform Edition) on Windows XP.

I want to run the app server as a Windows service.

How can I do this?

I looked at Sun's documentation. I could not find any information about using the app server as a Windows service.

I received a reply from Paul Ko at Sun Microsystems.

Paul is the product line manager for Sun's Java application server.



Sean,

To run the AppServer as a Windows service, you need to use 3rd party
software to enable this. The AppServer is designed to run as a
Windows application, not as a service. You can do a Google search to
find a suitable 3rd party software to fulfill you needs.
Unfortunately, we do not publish which 3rd party software can be used
to do this -- as a policy, we don't endorse any particular vendor.

Best,

Paul




I am disappointed that Sun does not provide this functionality out of the box.
