What do you mean by manage?

For stopping and starting, I built my own redhat-friendly init script to 
handle jetty.  It uses a file in /etc/sysconfig for commandline options.

You can see my init script here:

Here's what I have in /etc/sysconfig/solr:
STARTARGS="-Xms3072M -Xmx3072M -XX:NewSize=2048M -XX:+UseParNewGC 
-XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:+CMSParallelRemarkEnabled 
-Dsolr.solr.home=/index/solr -Dsolr.clustering.enabled=true 
-DSTOP.PORT=8079 -DSTOP.KEY=somePassword"

I'm running CentOS5, but I ran into a problem with the fuser command 
that I use in the init script.  I filed a bug with CentOS, but since the 
bug comes from upstream, they were not able to fix it.  You may need to 
install a new psmisc package to use the init script:

The script works fine on CentOS 6.
