You need to state what platform you're running on.

If you want a service to start automatically on a Linux system then I  
suggest taking a look at the way it's done by the Debian package, but  
I think you're using OS X, and that does things it's own unique way.

<http://oreilly.com/pub/a/mac/2003/10/21/startup.html> looks like a  
decent introduction to services under OS X, except that I think things  
changed with the introduction of 10.4 (??) and I think that article  
predates that. It should serve as a start point for your Googling,  
though; unfortunately, I think you may find this quite a lot of work.  
You might try taking a look at how Calendar Server is started under OS  
X Server.
