Hi,

Can anyone recommend a good (preferably free to redistribute) wrapper for a java app.

Preferably fully wrapping the jar (not just launching it from another directory).

This is for an app to be run as a service (or daemon).

Thanks

For windows, we deploy the 'application' as a folder that contains everything we need to run the application (a lib dir containing jars, a conf dir containing config files, etc). Then we configure the service wrapper (by way of it's predetermined configuration file) to include all the necessary files in it's classpath. The distribution contains scripts for running the app as a service, or running it directly as an exe via the wrapper.exe executable.
