My application runs on IBM WAS 126.96.36.199 on Windows 2008 Server. I want to konw if there is a way to programatically stop and restart my server? It has to trigger when I get a certain kind of exception. Any idea would be of great help.
I am not a programmer but can suggest you one thing.
You can write a script to capture you logs for the error and re-direct it to another file and then add a scheduler which can react to the captured event to restart WAS.
If it has been a UNIX based system then I would simply use crontab to run every minute or 5 minutes to check for the error and then issue KILL -9 for the JVM which would automatically restart it.
