The Tomcat Windows Service How-To guide lists some commands to run/stop/etc the service from the command line. For example:

Tomcat7 //ss// (with whatever parameters)

Is there any practical difference to just using Windows NET START and NET STOP or Powershell Start-Service and Stop-Service? Is it "better" to use the Tomcat commands? I.e. if I use NET STOP, is there any possibility that Tomcat won't clean itself up properly, or anything like that?


I never experienced any problem stopping it like any other services versus using the Tomcat helper program.
