I'd hope that it is impossible to hide a process in the (Windows?) task manager. Otherwise, malware writers would have an even bigger party than they do already.

If invoking Java from a batch file on a one-off basis, there's no need for the command interpreter process to stay around while Java is running. If you are indeed using Windows, the "start" command would allow the batch file to invoke Java and then continue or exit, while leaving Java running.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
