But then as a windows service, will it show an icon in the system tray so that the user can see a context menu on a right click?
The system tray has nothing to do with whether the java program is a windows service or not. It is implemented by your program, using the GUI toolkit. If you are using AWT/Swing, you will need to upgrade to Java 6. Or you can use SWT instead.
