If possible, I would not like to conceal the path of my java application, so I will like to install the bat file that runs the java application as a service. The java application is an application that is supposed to run 24/7

I have seen an alternative :Java Service Wrapper

I read already
I still don't get it.

Do I need to add something to my existing code

Or do I copy and paste the application class then it will install the java service?

Which of the 4 integration methods outlined in http://wrapper.tanukisoftware.com/doc/english/integrate.html did you decide upon? Did you notice that for each of them there's a link to a more detailed page with further instructions for Windows/Linux? Have you read the respective page for the integration method you chose? Which actual steps did you do (or try to do)?
