Suppose I have a simple shell script which run a java class file like this:

a.sh
------

java MyProgram

Now I want to execute that script every time linux start. How I can do that? Is there any facility just like Window's StartUp in linux?

regards,
Subhasis.

Your "rc.local" file is the most common place to put this sort of thing. Depending on your distro it will be in '/etc/rc.d' or '/etc/init.d'. The file is just a script so add the apropriate lines at the and of it to run your program at boot time.
