Running Java Daemons within Linux

Below is a small method for running Java daemons within Linux. The syntax is as follows:

  1. nohup is used so that it doesn’t get killed when user logs off
  2. </dev/null is used so that it doesn’t require a command-promt of it’s own
  3. & is used so that the Java daemon runs as a background process.

    nohup \
    [java binary] \
    [java file] \
    < /dev/null 2>&1 >/dev/null&
