Closing the browser window through Java

Hi All,

My wireless application works on a PDA browser. The PDA browser doesn't support javascript. When user wants to logoff from the application, he clicks on the logoff button. After clicking it the current browser window should close.
I am using XHTML-MP markup language to develop the page instead of HTML.
I need a piece of code (Example Java code, not Javascript code) in order to close the current window browser.

Any help will be welcome.

You can't do this with Java.

well, in j(x)se you can execute system commands. assuming that you are working with j2me, you might investigate in this direction, i think there is a forum for this here...

On normal PCs, it's rude for a web page to try to close the browser in which it is running. Is this not the case for PDAs as well?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
