You would have to "go native" to do this. Java itself does not include a way to do this because doing it in Windows vs. Unix is bad enough. Now toss in AS/400's and VMS based systems and the methods and permission issues are very different.

Only in some platform-specific way. You can execute an external program like UNIX's "ps", or you can use a platform-specific native API using the Java Native Interface. But there's no portable, Java-only way to do this.

Calling Runtime.exec("ps") returns a java.lang.Process object. You can ask this object to give you a java.io.InputStream and obtains the ps output.

I have not tested this, because I am currently working on Windows, I will see about it when I get home. But I think this might work:
