Application is terminated when log off from the server

I run my application on windows on server like this:
"C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe" -jar C:\myJarFile.jar

When I log off from the server the application is terminated (so only if I'm logged in the application will run).
How can I insure my application will always run regardless who is logged in to server?

    You can create a service to start the application, thus, the java app is always running even if no user is logged

    use the Java Service Wrapper (google search)
    You can also use the sc.exe to create the service
    don't forget to check in window services if autostartup once created
