> Java Service wrapper will support only for windows platform
If you write an appropriate Java program (i.e. one without GUI or CUI user interaction), it will be possible to run it as a "service" or a "daemon" on the given platform. The program itself is one thing, the wrapping (a Windows service wrapper or a nohup starting script under Unix etc.) is another thing.
One could ask, what makes a Java program eligible to be a service or a daemon. And one could ask, how to turn it into a Windows service or a Unix daemon.

how to turn it into a Windows service or a Unix daemon?
>Currently I know it for windows
>We can configure the service should automatic or manual. If it automatic means, when we start the system the service will starts, when the shut down the system the service will turned off.
>If it is manual means, the user has to manually start the service and stop the service manually in services.msc
