Running Java Daemons within Linux
Below is a small method for running Java daemons within Linux. The syntax is as follows:
- nohup is used so that it doesn't get killed when user logs off
- </dev/null is used so that it doesn't require a command-promt of it's own
- & is used so that the Java daemon runs as a background process.
