Hi friends,

I want to create an application that has to be run in background without any user interaction(like windows service) using java, it has to support for any platform.

Thanks in advance..

Regards,
Sanath

I need open source to create it. I think JRebel is not an Open source.

Thanks for the reply.

Regards,
Sanath

JRebel does something completely different. Search for "java service wrapper".

Java Service wrapper will support only for windows platform, I need to develop an application that has to support for any platform.

Thanks for the reply

> 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.

Hi evan,

what makes a Java program eligible to be a service or a daemon?

>As you said, the application should not interact with the user, the input data it has to pickup from the properties file maintained for that particular application.

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
