As an example, the CmapServer "IHMC Public CmapServer (2)", at 'cmapspublic2.ihmc.us', is launched by the following .plist file under /Library/LaunchDaemons:

us.ihmc.cmapspublic2.plist

Its content is the following. Notice that the path to where the CmapServer is installed includes an additional (unneeded) folder (IHMC CmapServer) -- this is just the way it was installed.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>Label</key>
<string>us.ihmc.cmapspublic2</string>
<key>UserName</key>
<string>root</string>
<key>GroupName</key>
<string>wheel</string>
<key>WorkingDirectory</key>
<string>/Applications/IHMC Public Cmaps (2)/IHMC CmapServer/bin</string>
<key>ProgramArguments</key>
<array>
<string>CmapServer.app/Contents/MacOS/CmapServer</string>
</array>
<key>RunAtLoad</key>
<true/>
</dict>
</plist>

We've updated the CmapServer Installation Manual to reflect the new way to run the CmapServer as a service:
