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.
