Sometimes it can be useful to test the Wrapper configuration or check the Wrapper outputs without launching a JVM. When this property is set to TRUE, the Wrapper will run until it is about to launch a JVM, and then will shutdown.

The default value is FALSE.

Here are few examples in which this property can be used:

Check the license status:

Check the configuration (print a warning whenever a property is overwritten and display information about the configuration properties):

Visualize environment variables:

Confirm the Java version used by the Wrapper:

Visualize the Java command line (without executing it):

Print all debug output:


It is generally a good practice to specify this property directly in the command line used to launch the Wrapper, to avoid the risk of leaving it in the configuration file. If you need to test a configuration specific to a Windows Service, please be aware that command line properties don't apply when starting the service and should be specified when installing it. In this case, it may be easier to just set this property in the configuration file.
