    Running FDS as a true service

    Vision Airlines
      I have FDS installed on Windows Server 2003. It runs fine as long as I'm logged in, but the server seems to shut down when I log off. I don't want to leave the server logged into an account all the time. This introduces a lot of security concerns. Is there a way to set it up as a true service so that it will continue to run without an account logged in?

          Hello:
          It really depends on the J2EE server you are using. FDS runs under a web
          application on that particular server, so let us know what you are using.

            For example, with the embedded JRun j2ee server that installs with Flex (which is a convenience, not a requirement), use the jrunsvc command to install as a windows service: see http://livedocs.macromedia.com/jrun/4/Installing_JRun/install5.htm.

            Once you have done that, set the following property in the {app_name}\WEB-INF\flex\flex-config.xml for the specific Flex app(s) that will be running on a headless server (which could be your case):

            <!--
            When headless-server is true, the system property java.awt.headless will be set to true.
            This should be used with JDK 1.4+ on servers without graphics cards and
            monitors. Otherwise, the property is not set.
            -->
            <headless-server>true</headless-server>
