Is there a way to show the wait-cursor while plantuml.jar is calculating/generating the file?

I'm calling the file from my program. After the file is generated, my program show the file.

 In my program I can set the Cursorwait(), but the cursor is show normal when calling plantuml.jar.

I don't know in which language  you code your program. On many languages you must explicit say that you want to wait until the end of the launched new process. The other common issue is when you run a long job in the GUI thread (the cursor cannot be modifey by the GUI, because the long job is running)

Hope this helps
