There could be many reasons. What error message are you getting when you try to run from the command line?
The most common reason, in my personal experience, is not having the correct classpath configured, but it really depends.

when i run my program in eclipse IDE working fine and also "soffice.bin" and "soffice.exe" process created in windows task manager once process created i can run in command prompt without error message
The error message should give you a hint: Cannot run program "\soffice": CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified
Where is the soffice.exe file located and how are you referring to it in your program? It looks like your program can't find soffice.exe if you run it from the command line. Try using the absolute path to the executable instead of a relative path (for example "C:\\Program Files\\Something\\soffice.exe" instead of "\\soffice").
