    StartUp Items
    Hi everyone, I added a new item to my Startup folder (Tomcat actually) and everything is working fine.

    I went ahead and removed this startup item (from the startup folder) and now my application continues to load on startup (and I no longer want it to).

    Does anyone know how to REMOVE a startup item in OS X?

    Edit: Removed, missed the Tomcat part
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    You'll probably have to read the tomcat instructions on how to uninstall (or disable). Because I don't think a service like that would be a simple matter of placing it into the Startup Items folder.

    Maybe edit startup.sh to remove tomcat:

    Oh boy...do I fee like a dork.

    I removed the Tomcat startup directory from /Librabry/StartupItems instead of /System/Librabry/StartupItems/

    I think everything is all better now.

    Thanks for the replies.
