IEHS subsystem as Service [message #42550] Mon, 26 January 2009 13:54 Go to next message

Our product can run as a service on Windows so that users can log off the
server without stopping the application. The info center for this product
is installed on the same machine and runs in info center mode in IEHS 3.1.
The info center dies if the user logs off Windows.

A developer here checked eclipse source code, and it looks like this could
be an eclipse defect.
We call org.eclipse.help.standalone.Infocenter to launch the infocenter.
Infocenter will start another Java process to start infocenter
application. However when Infocenter starts the java process, it did not
use -Xrs option, therefore, when user logoff, this java process
(infocenter application) will be killed.

Is this a bug, have others seen/worked around it?

Hi Ted,

How does running with -Xrs option prevent the Java process from dying
whe the user logs off?

I've seen the behavior you describe. I don't know if it falls into the
precise definition of a bug. There is a newsgroup focused on Eclipse
help system topics (eclipse.platform.ua), so you might want to repost to
that group.

I thought that some other teams work around this behavior by creating a
Windows service to run their installed info center (separate from the
Windows service for their product). For example, check the DB2 for
Linux, Windows, and UNIX product installation. If you can locate someone
on their Information Development team, they might have more information
for you about how they deal with this behavior.

Best regards,
Lee Anne
