Hi
   I have a requirement of Launching a Notepad from a Java
application at Run Time, and write on some message on to that Notepad. How to do that?

I have used following command
try
{
   Runtime.getRuntime.exec("notepad");
}
catch(Exception e)
{}

exec() method returns me a Process. But i am not able to get any reference of that notepad so that i can write into that.

Will any body explain me with full code how to do that.

regards

You'll have to create a file containing what you want in notepad, then pass that file as an argument.

FileOutputStream out=new FileOutputStream("tempfile");
...
out.close();
Runtime.getRuntime.exec("notepad tempfile");
