Any Java-based application, including WSO2 Carbon and any Carbon-based product , can be run as a Windows service by using a bridging tool such as Yet Another Java Service Wrapper (YAJSW).

Info

Note: Since YAJSW is distributed under the LGPL license and WSO2 is distributed under the Apache2 license, these two can not be packed together in a distribution. However, any end-user or customer can freely combine components under these two licenses as long as the combined work is not distributed. The instructions below guide you through using YAJSW to install a WSO2 product as a Windows Service.

Follow the instructions in the sections below to set it up.

as described in the following sections:

Table of Contents

Prerequisites

  • Install JDK and set up the JAVA_HOME environment variable. For more information, see Installation Prerequisites.
  • Download and install a service wrapper library to use for running your WSO2 product as a Windows service. WSO2 recommends Yet Another Java Service Wrapper (YAJSW) version 11.03, and several WSO2 products provide a default wrapper.conf file in their <PRODUCT_HOME>/bin/yajsw/ directory. The instructions below describe how to set up this file.

...

The configuration file used for wrapping Java Applications by YAJSW is wrapper.conf is , which is located in the <YAJSW_HOME>/conf/ directory and in the <PRODUCT_HOME>/bin/yajsw/ directory of many WSO2 products. The wrapper.conf file found in the <PRODUCT_HOME>/bin/yajsw/ directory holds the minimal configuration for running a WSO2 product as a Windows Service. 

...

Following is the minimal wrapper.conf configuration for running a WSO2 product as a Windows service. Open your wrapper.conf file, set its properties as follows, and save it in <YAJSW_HOME>/conf/ directory.

Info

If you want to set additional properties from an external registry at runtime, store sensitive information like usernames and passwords for connecting to the registry in a properties file and secure it with secure vault.

Note

You must manually add the following property to the wrapper.conf file

...

to avoid errors in the management console:

Code Block
wrapper.java.additional.26 = -Dorg.apache.jasper.compiler.Parser.STRICT_QUOTE_ESCAPING=false

If this property is not added, you may come across an exception that will result in blank pages when you log in to the IS management console.

Setting up CARBON_HOME

Extract the Carbon-based product that you want to run as a Windows service, and then set the Windows environment variable CARBON_HOME to the extracted product directory location. For example, if you want to run IS 5.1.0 as a Windows service, you would set CARBON_HOME to the extracted wso2is-5.1.0 directory.

...

The console will display a message confirming that the WSO2CARBON service was removed.
