Windows Service Wrapper

Intro 

The Win32 Wrapper, Makes Jetty Running as a Windows NT Service Possible.
The Win32Wrapper makes use of Java Service Wrapper,  see http://wrapper.tanukisoftware.org

Quick Start Guide

installing jetty as windows service

Code Block
(in your  <jetty-root>/bin)
Jetty-Service.exe --install jetty-service.conf
or
Jetty-Service.exe -i jetty-service.conf

Starting jetty as windows service

Code Block
(in your  <jetty-root>/bin)
Jetty-Service.exe --start jetty-service.conf
or
Jetty-Service.exe -t jetty-service.conf

 Stopping jetty as windows service

Code Block
(in your  <jetty-root>/bin)
Jetty-Service.exe --stop jetty-service.conf
or
Jetty-Service.exe -p jetty-service.conf

 Removing jetty as windows service

Code Block
(in your  <jetty-root>/bin)
Jetty-Service.exe --remove jetty-service.conf
or
Jetty-Service.exe -r jetty-service.conf

Note: The above application (Jetty-Service.exe) must execute with administrator rights otherwise, it fails.
In Vista, even with administrator account the service fails to install. Giving an error 'OpenSCManager failed'.
Below is the solution to this problem. This will now open a command prompt window with administrator rights.

Code Block
Go to Start | All Programs | Accessories, then right-click on "Command Prompt", and select "Run as administrator".

 Configuring Windows Service Wrapper

Setting a Jetty Configuration XML

 Setting a Jetty Configuration XML for Windows Service Wrapper can be done by editing jetty-service.conf found in your <jetty-root>/bin

change the

Code Block
...
wrapper.app.parameter.1=../etc/jetty.xml
...

 to any jetty xml configuration of your choice

Example:

Code Block
...
wrapper.app.parameter.1=../etc/jetty-ajp.xml
...

you can also set multiple jetty configuration XMLs, Just add a new line of configuration code, following the pattern below:

Code Block
wrapper.app.parameter.<parameter number>=<jetty xml configuration path>

 Example:

Code Block
...
wrapper.app.parameter.1=../etc/jetty.xml
wrapper.app.parameter.2=../etc/jetty-plus.xml
wrapper.app.parameter.3=../etc/jetty-ajp.xml
...
