The start-scripts "activemq" and "activemq-admin" do not seem to be ready for production use.
- Server does not run in background
=> this can be done by redirecting output to a file and run in background
=> in my opinion this should be implemented directly in java
=> the console log should be written by log4j to <install-root>/data/console.log
- The process should be started on a non-root user
=> use 'su -c "$COMMAND" - $RUN_AS_USER'
=> this should be defined in /etc/activemq.conf
- The script should support a "reload" feature to reload the configurartion
(if activemq supports reloading)
- The script should support a "status" option
=> this should show a quick overview about the state of activemq
=> this should return a value != 0 if the service is not working
(this is important for cluster integration)
Does anybody already working on these items?
Do you have suggestions for a implementation?
