Java Program as Windows Service

I am in need of running my Java Program as a Windows (Windows 7 and Server 64bit) service, something that runs in the background. This service needs to be invoked and stopped on demand. Please help.

Google for "Java Service Wrapper" -- which can run your Java program as a Windows Service.
