Running a JAR as a service (Linux/upstart)


  1. Thank you so much for this example! I had read/tried hundreds of others and never could get my jar file working until I tried yours. Simple and to the point, and the output to the log is a great idea also.

  2. Thanks that's VERY simple ! I have some questions though:
    1. What If I need to gracefully shutdown my service ?
    2. Your script shuts down my service only when the server is shutting down. What if I need to manually shutdown my service. Will this still work ?
