Java API to launch java applications as daemons

The libcommons-daemon-java package can be used to implement java applications which can be launched as daemons of the operating system. The application has to implement the provided interfaces by this package in order to be launched/stopped and restarted in the same fashion a normal unix daemons.

For example the java program will be notified about a shutdown and therefore be able to perform tasks before its process of execution is destroyed by the operation system.

This package contains the java library - you will also need the actual binary for your architecture which is provided by the jsvc package.

This is a part of the Apache Jakarta Project. Home: <>

Package version:1.0.1-3


To build the JAVA part:
ant dist

To build the native part:
1 - jsvc:
  cd src/native/unix; configure; make
  You need a gnu make.
  The jsvc executable could be found in dist.

  On windoze the additional step is needed:
  cd src/native/nt; make
  There is a README in src/native/nt please have a look to it.
  The exe files are created in dist.
2 - procrun:
  procrun is only for windows
  cd src/n
