Bundled Tomcat as a Windows Service? 11 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 21  
Tomcat Tips & Hints
Goal: Have Tomcat start automatically in the event Windows is restarted.

The bundled Tomcat, while it comes with all the usual Tomcat tools for adding and starting the server as a service on Windows, calls tomcat6.exe which for some reason, would not start as a service on the server I was installing on and does not read the other files which set the parameters necessary for XAware.

I came up with two options:
  1. Install a standalone Tomcat, install as a service using the provided .bat file or Tomcat6 tools, and configure it for XAware by deploying the xaware.war file to the Webapps directory and adding the -Dxaware.home=<xaware install dir> JVM option in the management tool

  2. - or -

  3. Using Windows Scheduler, schedule a new task to call the <xaware install dir>\start-tomcat.cmd file to start on Windows startup. While you don't see any visual indication that Tomcat is running, it is and will start whenever Windows does.


Hope this helps...
