If you are looking single sign on applications then Check the following pages page1 and page2, this might be helpful.

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
