    Keeping a Java app running after close window


    Hi, I start a Java application running from SSH, but as soon as I shut the SSH terminal window down, the service dies.
    I'm using Putty to access my server.

    How can I launch an application which doesnt die when I close the terminal window please?

    nohup java myprogram &

    Nohup will keep the program alive after I exit the SSH window and the ampersand makes the service run in the background.
