The Win32Wrapper makes use of Java Service Wrapper,  see http://wrapper.tanukisoftware.org

Quick Start Guide

installing jetty as windows service

(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

(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

(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

(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.

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

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

 to any jetty xml configuration of your choice

Example:

...
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:

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

 Example:

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