how can i start a class from another class?
which means, i want my first class to trigger the main method inside my second class.
Any advice will be appreciated

Calling main method of another from a class is possible only through invoking another JVM.
Runtime r = Runtime.getRuntime();
Process p = r.exec("java classname arg");
classname = Your Classname
arg = Argument for your classname if any
