    Smile javaw cpu

    Hey, whenever i run my java application from eclipse it loads it with javaw.exe instead of just java.exe. The problem im having is that javaw.exe seems to always take up 50% or more of my cpu regardless of the type of application. Im wondering if this is because of just its running on javaw? does anyone else have this problem or should i just run it using java.exe?

    The javaw command is identical to java, except that with javaw there is no associated console window. Use javaw when you don't want a command prompt window to appear. The javaw launcher will, however, display a dialog box with error information if a launch fails for some reason.

    Source: java - the Java application launcher

    PS- That's the first link I found when I googled "javaw".
