There are java applications that requie having an X server or need 
additional packages to be installed... what are the requierements for 
yours? Is it a standalone ".jar" file or daemonized service? And where is 
going to be run? I mean, what kind of installation, what do you have 
installed in your system (X server, window manager...)?

That will depend on the application requirements but basically you'll 
need to just call the java app on system start in the same you you'd do 
for another script/program.
