JobPoller does not run and hence scheduled/async jobs are never run

      Description

      Symptom:

      • services that are invoked with "dispatcher.runAsync" seem to stay "pending" in the job-list and never get executed
      • scheduled jobs don't get executed

      Steps to Reproduce

      • Login to /webtools
      • Schedule a Job to run in 5 mins, (for example service "clearAllEntityCaches")
      • Wait 7mins

      Expected:

      • the scheduled service "clearAllEntityCaches" is not "pending" anymore but should have status "finished"

      Actual:

      • scheduled service "clearAllEntityCaches" is still "pending"

      Analysis:
      The problem can be reproduced with the OFBiz 16.11-trunk as well as with the OFBiz 16.11.01 zip file version.

      JobPoller does get started on OFBiz start but does get stuck on line:
      org.apache.ofbiz.service.job.JobPoller.java: 213-215

      The reason is that the "Start.ServerState" never reaches "RUNNING"

      Doing a full-text scan through the whole source code shows, that there is no code at all that sets the ServerState to "RUNNING"

      Comparing it to the 15.11-branch. There used to be a line:
      serverState.compareAndSet(ServerState.STARTING, ServerState.RUNNING)

      no such line exists in 16.11 anymore.

      I'm not a OFBiz core developer but only develop modules.
      I attached a patch, that makes it work, but not sure if that's the best way to solve the problem.

      ./framework/start/src/main/java/org/apache/ofbiz/base/start/StartupControlPanel.java

      line 254: add "serverState.compareAndSet(ServerState.STARTING, ServerState.RUNNING);"
