hi there. i have the following problem: i need my java application to check whether an other java application is allready running on my machine or not (...and then do a kind of autologin) is this possible ? on windows ? do i need some special dll's ?
There might be a Windows equivalent of the Unix command "top" which lists the currently running processes. You could execute that using Runtime.exec and parse its output for the executable you're interested in.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
