Data How to create a service from a jar file.


I am new to Linux. I have a executable jar file which I need to run even before the user logs in. The problem is since I don't have good information about the services in Linux its very difficult to understand the same topic posted at other forums.

I have tried many things like java service wrapper and reading about /etc/init.d folder but nothing has worked so far.

Please share if someone has any example or experience.

please HELP!

Thankz is advance.

The JPackage Project has two primary goals: - To provide a coherent set of Java software packages for Linux, satisfying all quality requirements of other applications. - To establish an efficient and robust policy for Java software packaging and installation. We focus on free and open source software whenever possible. For convenience, we also provide non-free packages without the restricted source code. Our RPMs are generic in that they should work on any RPM based Linux distribution (Mandriva, Red Hat, SuSE, others). Other packaging format suggestions are welcome too. FILES
