On Solaris you would use 'SMF', which involves writing a 'manifest' -
an XML description of service (dependencies, what to run, etc),
potentially a 'method' script too (bit like an init script), if you
want to do funky stuff to start/stop a service.
Rather sadly, it seems like every *nix is off reinventing SysV init
at the moment.
