Is there a way to gracefully shutdown a running tomcat7 executable war built by the tomcat7-maven-plugin-2.1? If yes, what does this way look like?

Try kill -15 instead.

I'm trying to install tomcat service for Windows 7 manually on my system through command prompt.

I tried with">>service.bat install MyProject" but it looks like service doesn't get installed properly because I can see the service in the list but when I start it, it throws error.

Any idea on what could be the issue?

I'm not using tomcat's installer for windows as I would like to bundle it along with my project installer with bundled Java as well. I could use other Windows batch scripts of starting and shutting down tomcat which work well.

I have one .WAR to routinely deploy across various Tomcat Instances on different servers.

I believe FarmWarDeployer can only be used within a cluster. From what I understand, a cluster will require a HTTPD server with a mod_jk configured. Would anyone know of a way to achieve this without the need to configure a cluster? We have no desire to change traffic routing to go through an HTTPD as our load balancer handles traffic fine as it is. Ideally, i'd also like the context.xml to be distributable, so changing on one instance will update on all others...but I suspect this will require a cluster configured.

Does Tomcat server support Graceful Shutdown (like all other App Servers: Weblogic, Websphere), where new requests are rejected, and the server finishes in-flight work on existing requests?

Something like the apachectl -k graceful, but instead to restart to stop the server.
