The R6 Java Console

One new feature that I like in R6 is the Java Console.  If you start the domino server using the ‘-jc -c’ comand line switches it will start up a process called the ‘Server Controller’ which in turn starts up the domno server.

You can then use the Java Console ( jconsole.exe in the Notes program directory ) to connect to the server controller and thus see the normal console window.  The Java Console can also connect to any domino server that is running the Server Controller.

The only problem is that most of us run our domino servers as services that start automatically so starting the service in Server Controller mode takes a little registy hacking

Just open up your registry editor, go to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControllSetServices key and look for the Lotus Domino key.  In there you will find an entry called ImagePath.  Just edit that on and add the ‘-jc -c’ bit onto the end of what you see.  Reboot and then try out the Java Console.

Don’t forget, messing around in the registry could cause your machine not to function properly.  Always make a backup.
