B4J Question Server app hosting in Azure

I'm trying to host a B4J server app in Microsoft Azure Web App cloud.
I've followed the instructions to host in other VPS services but I can't get nohup there.
Has anyone done it successfully?

I see from the Azure logs that the app is restarted every time a web request comes in. So this goes back to my original question about properly setting up a persistent Java server app in Azure, which I'm not sure about.
I followed the instructions at https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/az...e-web-requests-on-azure-app-service-web-apps/
After copying the JAR file in the right path, a web.config file must be created to run it:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<add name="httpPlatformHandler" path="*" verb="*"
modules="httpPlatformHandler" resourceType="Unspecified" />
<httpPlatform processPath="%ProgramW6432%\Java\jdk1.8.0_60\bin\java.exe"
arguments="-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -Dport.http=%HTTP_PLATFORM_PORT% -jar &quot;%HOME%\site\wwwroot\bin\demojar.jar&quot;"

Can someone confirm if this web.config file needs some modification for "arguments" in order to run my JAR app properly?
