SwiftMQ HA Router 7.4.0 onwards contains "JavaSerice.exe" and "installService.bat" as part of the Windows distribution. Both files are located within the "scripts/win32" directory. "JavaService.exe" works fine with Sun's JVMs, however, it doesn't seems to work with IBM JVMs.
The "installService.bat" uses the following environment variables and values. If you use different values, you must edit "installService.bat".
|Environment Variable||Meaning||Default Value|
|JAVA_HOME||JDK Home Directory||Not set|
|SWIFTMQ_SERVICENAME||Name of the SwiftMQ Service||SwiftMQ|
|HA_INSTANCE||Name of HA instance. Must be instance1 or instance2||instance1|
|STORE_TYPE||Type of the store. Must be replicated, shared or jdbc||replicated|
|SWIFTMQ_WD||Working Directory||Current directory (%CD%)|
|SWIFTMQ_JARS||JAR Files of the SwiftMQ router||All JAR files in ../../jars|
|SWIFTMQ_CONFIG_FILE||The router's configuration file.||../../config/%STORE_TYPE%/%HA_INSTANCE%/routerconfig.xml|
To install SwiftMQ as a service, change into the "scripts/win32" directory and type:
The service is not started per default. To start it automatically you must change the startup mode of the service via the Control Panel.
To remove an installed SwiftMQ service type:
The service is stopped by killing the JVM. Because SwiftMQ HA Router has normally 2 HA instances running, hard killing one instance just leads to a failover. However, if the instance running as a Windows Service is in state STANDALONE, it must not be hard killed. Instead connect with SwiftMQ Explorer / CLI and perform an orderly shutdown. Then stop the service.
