The daemon function on my machine (old RedHat) does 8 not return until the executed program returns. So 7 you are going to need to have your little 6 utility script do the forking.

Try writing 5 your utility like this:


    until java -Xms256m -Xmx768m -jar MyApp.jar; do
        echo "MyApp crashed with exit code $?.  Respawning... " >&2
        sleep 5
) &

How this works. Putting 4 a command in parentheses starts code running 3 in a new process. You put the process in 2 the background so the original process will 1 return without waiting for it.
