    JBoss + JRockit + Win2000

    Martin Vilcans Newbie

      Does anyone run JBoss with JRockit? We could need some help here... :-)

      We have a site which runs JBoss and had some performance problems. We tried using JRockit instead of Sun's VM, and it gave much better performance (20-30% CPU utilization with 150 users, compared to 60-80% using Sun).

      The problem is that we have not been able to successfully install JBoss as a Win2000 service.

      We used JavaService (http://www.alexandriasc.com/software/JavaService/) before, but it doesn't seem to be compatible with JRockit (the service crashes or just stops at once).

      We also tried the Java Service Wrapper (http://wrapper.sf.net), which is more attractive anyway, but it doesn't work either. It could be that the Wrapper thinks the application ends when the first thread ends.

      Here's the Wrapper log with debug enabled:

      To install any program as a service there's FireDaemon (http://www.firedaemon.com/), but I haven't tried it and Wrapper is made for Java and free.

      Any ideas? Does anyone have clues to how to install JBoss as a service under Win2000 using JRockit?

      We're running JBoss 3.0.1.
