Hi,

I have a java program, and I would like to run it as deamon prcoess,

This is what I mean: when I type "java myProgram" on the command line, the program should be running in the background, and the system will return to the command line for another command.
The java program only tereminte when the computer reboots.

Anyhelp will be appericiated.

No. You can't really run a program in the background in Windows unless you run it as a service. This requires native code.

You can start a program using javaw.exe and then close the command window leaving the process running, but that's messy

You can do the same thing by running a java process that starts the actual java program, as

while(true) {
    Process process = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(...);
    int code = process.waitFor();
}
