Hi,

I want to call a Java application i have created from within the code of another Java application. Both of the class files will be in the same folder! Is this possible? If so, how?

Thanks for any help,

Emile

This is quite possible.

[CODE]
//Class1.java
public class Class1{
public static void main(String argv[]){
// Do some Stuff.
Class2.main(someStringArray);
}
}

//Class2.java
public class Class2{
public static void main(String argv[]){
// Do some Other stuff.
}
}

Absolutely possible -- just do it! I can't tell you exactly what to do, not having seen the code, but one class can create instances of another class and call its methods, or call the static methods of that class directly, just as you create objects of API classes and call their methods. You can even call "main":
