NAME

XAS::Lib::App::Service - The base class to write services within the XAS environment

SYNOPSIS

 use XAS::Lib::App::Service;

 my $service = XAS::Lib::App::Service->new();

 $service->run();

DESCRIPTION

This module defines an operating environment for Services. A service is a managed daemon. They behave differently depending on what platform they are running on. On Windows, they will run under the SCM, on Unix like boxes, they may be standalone daemons. These differences are handled by mixins.

The proper mixin is loaded when the process starts, so all the interaction happens in the background. It inherits from XAS::Lib::App. Please see that module for additional documentation.

OPTIONS

--pid-file

--install

--deinstall
