Hello Everybody,
I am having a java application,which has two buttons viz "RUN" and "Stop".When I click Run-button it opens a site
say http://www.hotmail.com in IE as I am running IEs exe
with statement
Runtime runtime = Runtime.getRuntime();
runtime.exec("explorer http://www.hotmail.com");
It works fine. But How to solve following problems
1. I want to stop same exe when I click button "Stop".How to do it ?
2. I want complete address which is displayed in IE after it opens the respective site.For Example When I open hotmail site
as shown above,it opens a login page and in IEs' addressbar it displays address
http://lc3.law5.hotmail.passport.com/cgi-bin/login
(If you simply type http://www.hotmail.com, you can see above address in addressbar when it opens a login page)
and I wants to access these address in my java application.
How to do it?
Kindly help me regarding above two problems as early as posible.

Hai Javed,

To stop ur explorer, try System.exit(0) in the stop button click event.

To read the datas from the explorer try using Process getInputStream() method.
