- Need an installer. Manual setup is still a little more complex than I would like.
- Should use a native runner for command-line. Currently uses a batch file.
- Setting up a new Windows Service requires a batch file. Should support either a GUI or Groovy script.
- Classloader structure needs peer review (has proven to work well in testing).
- Dynamic-loading design (including folder structure conventions) needs peer review. Folder structure may still change.
- Dynamic loading of DLLs is still experimental at this point - has not been proven in non-sun JVMs.
- Better support for advanced logging. Currently only supports simple stdout and stderr capture to file.
- Gosh uses an older version of JavaService.exe to run Windows Services. Needs to be updated and tested. Proven stable through Java 6u3.
- Need to take a look at JavaServiceWrapper from TanukiSoftware as a possible replacement for JavaService, since it seems to have more features and also supports Unix daemons.
- Need to find a new name for the project. Can anyone do better than "Gosh?"
When installed, Gosh takes over as the default command-line runner for Groovy. This may break existing code.
The following is required to run Gosh:
