Trouble launching Tomcat as daemon upon Mac startup

Hi,

I'm using Tomcat 6.0.26 and Mac 10.6.3. I want to have Tomcat launch as a daemon upon system startup. Per this article -- http://www.malisphoto.com/tips/tomcatonosx.html#Anchor-MODJK, I created the file "org.apache.commons.jsvc.plist" in my /Library/LaunchDaemons folder. However, when I reboot my system, no Tomcat. I must run the script "sh $CATALINA_HOME/bin/startup.sh" for it to run. Here are the contents of my "org.apache.commons.jsvc.plist" file:



and the contents of the "/Library/Tomcat/Home/bin/Tomcat5.sh" file ...



Thanks for any help or additional troubleshooting tips, - Dave

Not sure what's wrong with that, but this approach works fine for me.
