Install JBoss as service after manual installation of Forms


Former Community Member

I have installed Forms manually on a Windows 2003 server with JBoss and MS SQL Server. When I start JBoss with the run.bat in the bin directory Forms, is working fine. However, my customer would like to run the JBoss as a service under Windows (as it is when using the turnkey installation).

Does anyone know a proper way to install the LiveCycle JBoss as service?

I tried it using JBossService.exe I found when I googled the Internet, but the service is not properly starting the JBoss as it does with the batch file. I have loads of error messages in the log and no access to the adminui. Any hints, suggestions, ideas, etc. are greatly appreciated.

You'll need a couple of extra parameters. These can be gleaned by carefully reading the run.bat file.

They include:





Also, you'll need "-c all" to make sure it's the "all" configuration that starts up.

Good luck...

Hello Howard,

thanks for the hint. I got it finally working with the Java wrapper mentioned on that page. On the wrapper page was the useful hint to 'echo' the java call in run.bat to get the appropriate configurations, that helped me a lot.
