I want to deploy multiple versions of an app server on my local machine for development purposes (testing for compatibility, etc). I've got about 5 that I'll want to have installed at any given time, but really only need 1 or 2 of them on a day to day basis. I'd rather turn on/off the others on demand.
Originally I had problems deploying them all when I ran into memory issues, but setting
-XX:MaxPermSize=256m took care of that. Now I've realized I don't need them all at once.
Is there a way to specify that certain applications should not auto-start?
