You can provide Sys 5 style init scripts. These are located under /etc/init.d or /etc/rc.d.
This kind of scripts take one argument with at least:'start','stop', maybe 'status'

RedHat provides a 'chkconfig', you may find some similar solution for Ubuntu.

Poooh - good question. I am using arch, and there are no /etc/rc.d/rc0.d -- /etc/rc.d/rc5.d, however handling of runlevels is done in some kind of way.
Yes, you can put your programs in /etc/rc.local, and they will be started, i guess when the system starts. Using a runlevel friendly way, however, will make sure, that the processes will be finished in a nice way.

You may search for: find /etc -name "tomcat" or find /etc -name "postmaster" (i guess this is the postgres daemon, right?

You may also have a look for runlevels in wikipedia, for instance.

i am using Ubuntu.. & i don't have rc.d in /etc however i have init.d & rc0.d to rc6.d + rcS.d

i think most deb. based distros have this..!!

In that case create a startup-script for both of those in
/etc/init.d (use a small one of the others you find there
as a template regarding start, stop and the like) and then
place symlinks in the respective rcX.d directories.

See /etc/rc2.d/README (for example) and /etc/init.d/README
for more information ....


Cheers,
Tink
