  What does your start function currently look like?  You can probably
do something like

-module (server).
start () ->
  thrift_socket_server:start ([{port, 12345},
                               {name, ?MODULE},
                               {service, myService_thrift},
                               {handler, ?MODULE},
                               {framed, true},
                               {socket_opts, [{recv_timeout, 60000}]}]).

Then you should be able to use

% erl -s server

in a server.  Also you could check out

which will create a skeleton application, supervisor, and service.
