Does anyone know what is the difference between running a process as one time cronjob and running the process as a Daemon Process?

Well, i'm not a expert in this area but i try explain you.

A Cron is a daemon running in your system that call any process you have configure at the time you have configure.
The process call by Cron dont have a special type of programming.Start, make its work and end.

A daemon proccess is make for running all the time, and when "something" happens it makes a new thread that make the work.
