Hi,
I was told you can get the java process id (OS thing) from within the java program - someone told me I could get it from some method in the Thread arena but I can't find it.
Many Thanks

I believe your informant was mistaken. Frankly, I don't know what you would do with the process ID once you got it. But anyway according to tradition Java libraries do not expose OS-level information.
 
I found some pretty shells, some sea glass and this lovely tiny ad:
