Since it has a user interface, there isn't any point in running it before somebody logs in. If you want to run it when somebody logs in, that's probably possible, but how you would do it depends on what operating system you were asking about.

The question has nothing to do with Java and everything to do with your OS. Do you know how to schedule any program to run on computer startup?


luck, db
There are no new questions, but there may be new answers.

You can run Java programs upon PC startup using a service wrapper; look it up. However, it cannot interact with the desktop, so no user interface is possible.

You can run any Java program whenever a user logs in. In Windows, all you need to do is create a shortcut in the Startup folder of the start menu. Another option is using the Run part of the registry. In Linux it's different but still possible.
