Running a java program only in the background

What i was wondering is when i load a java program on start up, normally the black dos screen will load up and then the java program will run. Well i want to eliminate that. I just want the program to run in the background. I want to start the program up at start up but want to make it so that the user does not know that the program is running. So basically what i am trying to say is that the only way to tell if the program is running is to check your tasks or processes that are running at that time. If anybody has the answer to this it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Have you tried �javaw� instead of �java�?
