Open program not in task bar

I have program I wrote in java that I use regularly. I was using LM Cinnamon 18 in this I was not able to switch tasks using alt tab but the program was in the task bar so I could I could access it that way. I have now upgraded to 19 and now it doesn't appear in the task bar either. I have to minimise everything to get at the program. I am using the always on top selection at the moment as a work around but this is not ideal. Not sure if it makes a difference but I open the program via a script. How can I either have it appear as an open program in the task bar or be able to switch using alt tab. BTW I upgraded to 19 to get my printer to work and it does so I don't want to go back to 18. Actually I've just realised using always on top doesn't help as I have to do it everytime a new widow opens.
