I'm running Tomcat 5.0.28 on a Windows 2003 server, and I need to automatically shut it down & restart it. One way is to control it via shutdown.bat & startup.bat, and run these as scheduled tasks at (say) 3:30am and 3:31am. However, I've noticed that while shutdown.bat will shut it down if it was previously started as a service, startup.bat won't run it as a service, it starts it at a command prompt.

My question is: does this matter? If I'm running on Windows are there any advantages to running Tomcat as a service? Or disadvantages to running from the command prompt? The server is dedicated to tomcat, by the way.
