PostHeaderIcon Start Mule ESB as an NT service under a Windows server

Case

You would like to start a Mule ESB instance as an NT service, under a Windows server. You would also like to give a specific name and description

Fix

  • add an environment variable MULE_HOME, with value the path of Mule install, for instance: C:\jonathan\mule-standalone-3.0.1
  • edit the file %MULE_HOME%\conf\wrapper.conf
  • replace the following properties default values:
    wrapper.ntservice.name=%MULE_APP%
    wrapper.ntservice.displayname=%MULE_APP_LONG%
    wrapper.ntservice.description=%MULE_APP_LONG%
  • (you can also set other properties related to NT service configuration)
  • launch the command:
  • %MULE_HOME%\bin\mule.bat install -config %MULE_HOME%\bin\mule-conf.xml
  • then you can see in the administration services that the service has started
  • to remove the service, only launch the following command
  • %MULE_HOME%\bin\mule.bat remove

Known issue:

On certain installations (among them the servers on which CygWin is installed), a conflict may happen between the files %MULE_HOME%\bin\mule (standard launcher for Unix and Linux) and %MULE_HOME%\bin\mule.bat (standard launcher for Windows). In this case, rename %MULE_HOME%\bin\mule as %MULE_HOME%\bin\mule.OLD

PostHeaderIcon sljava.dll / IntelliJ IDEA / ActivIdentity

Case

The administrators tried to install ActivIdentity on my desktop. Then I rebooted my computer and launched IntelliJ IDEA 8.1.4 as usual.
IDEA froze. I tried to launch former versions (8.0, 7.5.4), with the same result. Then I launched the idea.bat (available in the same folder as the idea.exe), setting echo on, to have a little more logs.

Explanation and Fix

I ran other Java applications, such as Eclipse and Mule ESB. The result was the same.

When you look at the stacktrace, you can see that sun.reflect.NativeConstructorAccessorImpl.newInstance0 calls com.actividentity.sso.javasso.awt_swing.JavaSSOHook. This makes me think ActivIdentity intercepts Java calls, even of very low level, and checks them before executing them. I don’t know if compiled code of JRE’s jars is modified, or if some methods are inserted through a mechanism similar to AOP. Anyway, the fact is that ActivIdentity is always called, even though I doubt a lot that original HotSpot was designed to do so…

I tried to uninstall ActivIdentity, this had no effect. I looked in Windows regedit but I found nothing. I tried also to check the value of java.library.path which, for Windows, points to Windows’PATH environment variable.

Therefore, the only solution I found to fix the issue was to changed the JAVA_HOME parameter (more accurately: the parameter IDEA_JDK) from one JDK to another, in my case: from 1.6.0_01 to 1.6.0_18)
