Java: run as administrator

Is there a way in Java to ask the system to get control over administrator functionality.
Of course without doing: Right click on the exe -> run as admin.

What I want is that there comes a frame from UAC like in Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Or have I to do some settings while making an exe from the jar?

Answer

You have to create a manifest file that specifies that your application needs administrator permissions. You can include the manifest in your exe or keep it as a separate file (yourapp.exe.manifest)
