This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi. I have a java program that need to be started at user logon on windows. I know that it needs to be placed in the startup folder of the user, but what do I place there? An .exe?Or maybe a .bat file that starts a JVM (i.e.: java myprogram)
If you want to run your program as a Windows Service, then Cindy's suggestion is good. But if you just want to start your program in the start-up, and doesn't want to make it a Windows service, a simple batch file will do, as you pointed.
