Hi, this problems been driving me nuts�
How to terminate a sub �main method� class, that was initiated by another, in this case Master �main method� class�
Best explained via example�
Say I have two pre-made Java programs that I felt could work nicely together...
1) A simple �Text Editor�
2) A �Dictionary Viewer�
Both written completely separately with their own main methods (you can start either independently), so the �Dictionary Viewer� class is a kind of module program, that can be started from the �Text Editor�, which is simply done via�
Dictionary foobar = new Dictionary();
Now say after one minute, I wont to automatically close down (terminate) the �Dictionary Viewer�, setting up a timer is easy, but what boggles me is how to kill the main method class �Dictionary ( )� which I initialized in my �Text Editor� ?
Note: I know of many solutions that require merging the two codes (or similar), but I need them to be as they are both main methods that can be run independently, but with one being able to initialize the other then shut it down.
