I currently use the follownig code to open a browser from my application;
Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime();
Process proc = rt.exec("c:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\IEXPLORE.EXE");
What I want to do is also to be able to close this appliation from my Java application, is this possible?
To take this a step further, is it possible to close any other application that is running, even if you don't know what is running?
Thanks in advance
James

The API documentation seems to say that after
Process child=Runtime.getRuntime().exec(command);
you could
child.destroy();
