Hello world,
I have this assignment to do. It is that, the user is allowed to enter a process name and when entered, if that perticular process is running, the program should give the attributes of the process. From the information I gathered so far, I understood that, it is not possible to do it with Java. I have to use some other languge such as C++. Could you please tell me how to combine these to languages, and say if the C++ codes results in an array of data, how to get them directly to an array in Java in the program.
Thank you in advance....................

You're perhaps going to want to get into JNI. So, I'm moving this to the Other Java APIs forum, where folks just love to talk about JNI.
