Is there anyway to catch windows executable file start/stop events in java. I am working on a data logging app. I need to catch start and stop event of a window executable and log it. Then monitoring files in a particular folder being updated by executable and learn which file is being updated/deleted/created and log it too.
To be honest, I don't know the answer to your question.
The book is about how event are processed; events can get from many sources, and the way the event is created/observed/instrumented is particular to the specific source, so try to address your question to Windows experts.
