tomcat automatically start in ubuntu

Automatic Tomcat Starting

To make tomcat automatically start when we boot up the computer, you can add a script to make it auto-start and shutdown.

sudo vi /etc/init.d/tomcat
 

Now paste in the following:

            # Tomcat auto-start
            # description: Auto-starts tomcat
            # processname: tomcat
            # pidfile: /var/run/tomcat.pid

            export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun

            case $1 in
            start)
            sh /usr/local/tomcat/bin/startup.sh
            ;;
            stop)
            sh /usr/local/tomcat/bin/shutdown.sh
            ;;
            restart)
            sh /usr/local/tomcat/bin/shutdown.sh
            sh /usr/local/tomcat/bin/startup.sh
            ;;
            esac
            exit 0
        

You’ll need to make the script executable by running the chmod command:

sudo chmod 755 /etc/init.d/tomcat

The last step is actually linking this script to the startup folders with a symbolic link. Execute these two commands and we should be on our way.

sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/tomcat /etc/rc1.d/K99tomcat
sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/tomcat /etc/rc2.d/S99tomcat
