Just as a quick example, when you start your application, a new user thread is created that execues your main method (this is sometimes called the main thread). As this is a user thread, your application will not terminate until this thread completes. At the same time that the main thread is spawned, a garbage collection thread, which is a daemon thread, will be started. As this is a daemon thread, application termination is not dependent upon the garbage collection thread. Rather, whenever the application terminates, so too does the garbage collection thread.
There is a lot of information on user and daemon threads in the Java Programmer's Certification Study forum.
I hope that helps,

Boost libraries are readable with good documentation, thus makes it a good source for learning and demonstration.
Any Java equivalence out there?

I tried javaw instead of java. It works but the dos window is still opening, however now I may shut it down. I am still looking for a solution where the dos window does not open, or some code that will close the window automatically!
I think that it's not really professional to ask a user to close a window each time he start an application! Are your professional application working with that window?
Let me know please!
