The code in jakarta-commons-sandbox/daemon runs only in Unix like platforms 
(that means you need cygwin to run it under windoze). A possible improvement was 
to add APR to get it more win32 native but that is some work before beeing able 
to use it.

The SourceForge wrapper already works on windoze and Unix.
