This property is used to tell the Wrapper whether or not to wait for the command to complete before allowing the Wrapper to continue.

Like several of the event command properties, it can be defined:

  • Globally for all events: wrapper.event.default.command.block property, or
  • For a specific event: wrapper.event.<event_name>.command.block property.

The "<event_name>" component of the property name can be either the keyword "default", or one of the Event Types. By setting the default property, all Event Types which are not set explicitly will take on that value.

The default value is "FALSE".


By default, the Wrapper will timeout after 15 seconds and then continue. Both of these can be configured with the wrapper.event.<event_name>.command.block.timeout and wrapper.event.<event_name>.command.block.action properties.

Invalid Events:

The value of the property will be ignored for the following events as they can not be delayed:

  • "jvm_start" event.
  • "jvm_started" event.
  • "jvm_stop" event.

Please see the Event Commands documentation for more examples and an explanation of how the various event properties can be used together.

The Java Service Wrapper provides a full set of configuration properties that allows you to make the Wrapper meet your exact needs. Please take a look at the documentation for the individual properties to see all of the possibilities beyond the examples shown above.
