Can't resist the urge to feed that one ;)
It's just that Java being cross-platform and the notion of process owner 
being specific to only a few platforms, Java does not suports this 
feature natively. Jakarta Commons' deamon  is a unix-only solution (I 
imagine it uses JNI). So its's possible, but not portable. Still an 
advanced language...
