Need an init script for a Java service? Like tomcat, liferay, or jboss?
Regular Linux init scripts often don't work so well. e.g. Java apps typically want to be run by a particular user (e.g. tomcat or liferay). e.g. They may require a 'special' shutdown mechanism (e.g. with Tomcat sending a signal to a particular port).
