Avoid sending SIGINT to native child process?

Is there any way to prevent a SIGINT signal from propagating to a 
background child Windows process?

I'm trying to write a script to start a Java application server. I want 
the script to trap Ctrl-C and send the app server a command to shutdown 
cleanly, but it appears the Ctrl-C is immediately propagated to the Java 
process, even though the script traps it.
