Background process to monitor network interfaces

I am working on a project in which the various network interfaces on a computer are being monitored. I want this program to start running as a background process as soon as the computer starts. Any help regarding this (how to create a background process that starts up when the computer is started) will be greatly appreciated.

What operating system are you using? If windows, search for "java service". If *nix, search for "java daemon".
