I have a standalone class sitting outside WAS.
Is there any way (WAS API) i can start that stand alone class from WAS...that is as soon as my WAS starts that class also starts.
I dont use start that class using the servlet.

I have no idea what you mean by a "standalone class". Do you mean a class that has a main() method you need to start?

A class with a main method.

Kick off a thread in a servlet's init method that uses the RunTime object. Bad thing is that the thread will kick off when the app is restarted.

I dont want to use the servlet method.
The update is that i created a java class outside WAS and packaged it in a jar file.
Mentioned the path of the jar file in java VM arguments of WAS.
When i start the server that standalone java class gets executed but then the server stops automatically without giving any error.
What is the problem??

use websphere startup class. if you mention the class with required arguments in the configuration,when the server starts up ,it starts the stand alone program as well
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
