You could write a small script with executable permissions that contains your java command with all parameters as you would execute it from a terminal. Then you could add that script to the /etc/rc.d/rc.local script that gets executed at boot by init. This way you don't have to write any initialization scripts in the /etc/rc.d/init.d/ directory. If you want it to depend on the runlevels then you'll need to write a 'chkconfig ready' script and run the chkconfig utility (man chkconfig).

Kind regards,
