Running Torquebox as a Windows Service

If you are planning on running Torquebox – the JRuby application server – as a Windows service then let me save you a bit of searching.

The thing to remember is that Torquebox 2.x is – under the bonnet – a JBoss AS7 instance and as such you can use the instructions here for running JBoss AS7 as a service. This worked right off the bat for me.

Running Torquebox as a Windows service will ensure that you can stop and start it automatically with the machine in the event of a reboot, and the server execution is not tied to a particular user session.

Another useful bit of information for getting your JRuby stack running on Windows.
