windows startup equivalent in linux

hi all,
please tell me how to start a java GUI program in the startup of the machine.

since it invokes a GUI is it possiable to entry the same in /etc/rc2.d/S99userdefinedfiles.

thanks in advance .,

Do you use KDE? If so there is an Autostart directory in the user's .kde directory.

Otherwise, you may still try to edit xinitrc. Depending on configuration this file is not necessarily sourced, though.
