Thanks a lot to all who replied to my question (Vern Walls, Mohan
Doraiswamy ,  Roland Rebstock , Admin and Chris Sellers).

I tried the below commands but they did not solve the problem:
$ exec nohup ./application start
$ exec nohup ./application start &

I tried starting the application out of a crontab as suggested by Vern
and it was able to keep running.
The desadvantage is that each time i stop the process i will have to
adjust the time of the cronjob to the nearest time possible to get

I'll also look into Chris's suggestion of using inittab to keep the
application running.
Meanwhile, at least the application is up and running everyone is happy :)

Thanks again.
Have a nice day.
