Custom service collection

Use this page to view a list of services available to the application server and to see whether the services are enabled. A custom service provides the ability to plug into a WebSphere appserver and define code that runs when the server starts or shuts down.

To view this administrative console page, click Servers > Application Servers > server> Custom Services.

Startup Specifies whether the server attempts to start and initialize the service when its containing process (the server) starts. By default, the service is not enabled when its containing process starts.
