jsrvany is a Java package (plus a native JNI invoker) which uses the Java event model to implement the win32 Service Control interface in Java. This allows any Java application to be run as a service on Windows NT 4 and for the application to respond to all the events triggered by the win32 Service Control Panel - start, stop, pause, continue, terminate and interrogate.
Guess what - I'm struggling to run a Java application as a service at the moment - this could be just what the doctor ordered.
In fact, running the Java application as a service isn't the problem - stopping the bastard is the trick. And I can't see what is going on, 'cos NT is dropping stdout and stderr on the floor.Posted to Java by Simon Brunning at September 24, 2002 05:04 PM
