Controlling Java at the terminal

I'm writting an application that is making use of a large
number of other applications. A few of which are java.
To call them from my app I'm sending the command:
java -jar prog.jar < infile > outfile
This works fine so long as I only make use of the java applications minimally, however, the java program I am using
is a tagger, which is being called potentially thousands of times. As you might image this is a very large bottleneck
in my app. I was wondering if there is any way that i might just
be able to say java -start
then anything i send such as -jar prog.jar
would be executed, rather then me having to restart the JM
everytime i want to use my tagger or if anyone has any
suggestions as to how i might work around this problem
I agree. Here's the link:
