Most Oracle Application Server (AS) installations automatically create a Windows Services entry to allow the OracleAS processes to start up on server startup. By design, certain OracleAS releases such as the SOA Suite do not create the Windows Services entry. In such installations, the user starts OracleAS processes from the Windows Start Menu.  When the user logs out of the Windows session, the OracleAS processes will terminate as well.  Resulting in an unexpected Application Server shutdown.

This note provides the steps to create a Windows Services entry for starting up OracleAS processes upon reboot/startup of the server.  Processes started via Windows Services entries are not affect by a user logging out of the Windows session.
