Review request for Flume.
Repository: flume-git

This patch adds files necessary to run Flume Agent as Windows Service.

I added two folders under \bin: win32 and win64. Both of them contain corresponding version of prunsrv.exe and two PowerShell scripts for installing/uninstalling FlumeAgent service: InstallService.ps1 and UninstallService.ps1.

In order to install the service, open PowerShell promptand type (I assume you have 64-bit operating system and 64-bit version of Java). You might need to enable script execution by running
Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned
then type:
cd \apache-flume\bin\win64

After that service will be installed, and you can start it:
net start FlumeAgent

In order to uninstall service, do the following:
cd \apache-flume\bin\win64

Log files (including one created by prunsrv) are stored in logs.

x86 and x64 Versions
There are two versions of prunsrv for different architectures: x86 (32-bit) and x64 (64-bit). You need to choose which one to use based on the version of Java you have installed. I configured prunsrv to use such called JVM-mode. In that mode prunesrv.exe loads jvm.dll from JRE and then runs that VM. If you have 32-bit version of Java, 64-bit prunsrv will not be able to load 32-bit version of jvm.dll and service will not start.
