      Description

      Hello,
      It would be nice if we can run GF on port 80/443 as a non-root
      user on all platforms. The Apache Commons-Daemon "jsvc" supports
      this in a x-platform way and works great with Tomcat 5.5.x.
      This avoids "fronting" the app-server with Apache HTTP server.

      Thanks
      Raj

        Not a deployment issue.

        That works on Solaris 10. Windows should not be an issue. I understand that there
        might be problems with Ubuntu.

        We might want to support Tomcat's jsvc which seems to work on any platform. I
        wil investigate that part.

        Thanks for filling this REF

        This is something we can think of as v3 is much more easy to start that v2,
        hence supporting jsvc should be quite simple.

        Re-asign to Kedar to see what he thinks. Might want to close that issue if we
        can't supports it in v3.
