Tomcat 9 startup at server start

Postby huber » Tue Oct 08, 2019 9:57 am

I try to automatically startup Tomcat 9 (9.0.26) with LaunchDaemon on macOS Mojave. My LaunchDaemon "org.apache.tomcat.plist" property list file looks like as follows:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>Disabled</key>
<false/>
<key>Label</key>
<string>org.apache.tomcat</string>
<key>ServiceDescription</key>
<string>Tomcat</string>
<key>UserName</key>
<string>root</string>
<key>GroupName</key>
<string>wheel</string>
<key>EnvironmentVariables</key>
<dict>
<key>CATALINA_HOME</key>
<string>/Library/Tomcat</string>
<key>JAVA_HOME</key>
<string>/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_221.jdk/Contents/Home</string>
</dict>
<key>ProgramArguments</key>
<array>
<string>/Library/Tomcat/bin/startup.sh</string>
</array>
<key>RunAtLoad</key>
<true/>
<key>KeepAlive</key>
<true/>
</dict>
</plist>


The file is placed in /Library/LaunchDaemons folder and has root:wheel as owner:group settings (tried also with admin:wheel, admin:staff etc. with no success).

Unfortunately, Tomcat won't startup. I have not problem starting and stopping Tomcat in a Terminal with following commands (where "Tomcat" is a sym link to the tomcat installation)
/Library/Tomcat/bin/startup.sh

/Library/Tomcat/bin/catalina.sh stop


So manually sorting and stopping works well. This is also true when using a Mac utility called Tomcat Controller.

Anyone having a property list for Tomcat 9 which works and is willing to share?

Hi Marc

Thanks for your link. I tried many of the hints described there but with no luck. Strange thing is that manually starting the startup.sh script is no problem, as well as stopping. But I don't get it to run with LaunchDaemon and loading it into Launchctl list. Tried also all sorts of owner:group combination, as it seemed to me it could have to do with bad ownership. But also without luck. I have been run out of ideas where the problem could be, therefor anyone who is able to start the java process with the LaunchDaemon would be helpful to know.
