I'm not sure whether or not this it the right place, but I did not see anything else that looked like it would be more appropriate.

I have written an extremely small Java utility for my employer. They like it, and want to deploy it on a small handful of systems. Here is the problem, they need it to start up on boot and stay up at all times. It does open a window so it needs to run while window management is up.

I have played around with starting it in both inittab and rc.local and the best that I seem to be able to get is that, when we reboot, it starts , it shows up on the screen, but when we log into their main application window, it disappears.

Has anyone been this route before?

I'd appreciate any tips I can get....
