[platform-help-dev] Eclipse infocenter as Windows service - Is it possible?


We are trying to create a windows service for our Eclipse infocenter 2.1.1.

As we have found out, if the user who started Eclipse server logoffs, the server will go down. This is not a problem in UNIX as we run Eclipse in the background but a major problem in Windows. So we will need to create a Windows service. Our windows service does start up and Eclipse help is working, but when the user finally logs off, the JVM dies (though eclipse.exe is still running but as a dangling thread).

Is this due to the fact that Eclipse help infocenter does not return? We have tried various options against the vm including using "-Xrs" option in the -vmargs. Nothing seems to work.

Can Eclipse infocenter not run as a Windows service?
