Pleas point me to a good source how to use that (with ubuntu and Tomcat 7)?
The internet is full of selfmade /etc/init.d/ scripts, but mostly it isn't used it as a real service (jsvc). Keyword: bin/*daemon.sh*
Even the books "Apache Tomcat 7" and "Tomcat 7 Essentials" are not talking about it.
On the docs I've found this [http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-7.0-doc/setup.html#Unix_daemon]:
tar xvfz commons-daemon-native.tar.gz
cp jsvc ../..
But what about:
* set env. variables (maybe: catalina.sh?, /etc/profiles?)
* adjust the heap size
* logging to the right directory (like: /var/log/tomcat/...)
* specifying the User: "tomcat"
