win32_service_manager

DESCRIPTION:

A simple wrapper around Win32::Service to present a more 'God' (god.rubyforge.org) like interface. Also presents all service information as hashes rather than structs to save on wire transport and multi-platform complexity.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • Really heavily mocked out for testing, might need more integration tests.

SYNOPSIS:

sm = Win32ServiceManager.new('')
sm.status
sm.status('Abiosdsk')

REQUIREMENTS:

At the time of writing, some of the dependencies are only available as gems to the 'x86-mswin32-60' platform. If you are installing on mingw, you can get away with installing them using a specific –platform argument to rubygems.

  • win32-service

INSTALL:

  • gem inst win32_service_manager
