Subject [jira] Commented: (DAEMON-153) [PATCH] Update/fix of script
Date Sun, 21 Mar 2010 04:23:27 GMT


Christopher Schultz commented on DAEMON-153:

Thanks for the patch!

I would recommend the following changes:

1. Put pid file back in /var/run... it's more standard than /tmp I think
2. Remove JAVA_HOME/rt.jar from the CLASSPATH... the JVM should automatically add all the
bootstrap stuff
3. Remove -debug switch from jsvc invocation
4. Make the -jvm and -wait options into script variables instead of forcing values: it's nice
when all configuration can be done via variables instead of editing the script itself
5. Quote all uses of the following variables: CATALINA_HOME, CATALINA_BASE, JAVA_HOME, TMP_DIR,
CLASSPATH, DAEMON, PID_FILE (basically all variables that could contain spaces and would really
hose things if a space were in them)
6. I'm' disturbed by the 'chown' you've added: there's no need for the user to 'own' those
files... just that they have read access to them. Also, the username may not be valid as a
group name :(
7. Allow the user to specify the location of 'curl' and check to make sure it exists and is
runnable before trying to run it (maybe an error message that 'curl' is not found is good
enough, which the shell should do for you) else you'll get a spurious message that Tomcat
isn't running if curl isn't available
8. Honestly, I think I'd remove the 'status' option entirely: though useful, it has nothing
to do with jsvc. Alternatively, use the -check option on jsvc to check a running service :)
9. Does specifying -errfile as the same file as -outfile actuall work? I would expect that
the file would be opened twice unless jsvc is very smary. You should use -errfile '&1'
and -outfile "${CATALINA_BASE}/logs/catalina.out" instead. Write a simple servlet to write
to both stderr and stdout to make sure both streams are going to the right place. If '&1'
isn't working properly, log a bug for that.

> - Added 'status' support, to ping a URL and report success if the host was reachable

may be required.
