    JBoss refuses to be launched from a Java app?

      I'm trying to launch JBoss from a Java app using Runtime. Here's a stripped-down sample:

      public class runjboss
      {
      public static void main(String[] args)
      {
      try
      {

      Runtime.getRuntime().exec("/usr/local/jboss/jboss/bin/run.sh &");

      while (true)
      Thread.currentThread().sleep(10000);
      }
      catch (Exception e)
      {
      System.out.println("foo");
      }
      }
      }

      JBoss will spin up and run full blast for about 5-7 seconds, and then will just grind to a halt. Once I kill the java app that launched it, all of a sudden JBoss starts up again and completes its launch.

      I can't figure out why JBoss is unhappy, or how it even knows that this other, totally unrelated app quits.

      Any ideas? Thanks.
