I am having trouble getting a successful restart done using either the API in a Http Provider or using the jmx api with this example Sample Java class for creating a command line interface to control Wowza Media Server. I am using an rtp stream with a .stream file in the content directory and in startupstreams.xml.
My understanding is that there is no need to explicitly call a method on appInstance to actually start the app (there is a shutdown but not a start method in the API) and that it will restart when a client attempts to connect. However I am getting a stream not found when attempting to connect after a shutdown. I then have to ssh into the instance and call restart on the Wowza process to get the stream working again.
Am I missing a restart equivalent in the API, or is there something else I’m missing? Here is what I’m doing to shutdown:
IServer server = Server.getInstance(); IApplication app1 = vhost.getApplication(server.getProperties() .getPropertyStr("PublishToApplication", "live")); IApplicationInstance instance = app1.getAppInstance("_definst_"); instance.shutdown(false, false);
