Hi all I was wondering if i can do this. I have writteen one java application that converts data metric to imperial and wirte to another file. The program is working fine but what i would like to do is, once i write data back to the file i would like to call another program and end java applicatlion. OR i should say wake up another program to do the rest. The another program could in C++ or VB, i am not sure yet. I think it is possible however i couldn't find much information on that topic. I would really appreciate if you guys can assist me in this matter. Looking forward to hearing from you shortly.
