When calling an AWT app from a .bat file, how do you close the resulting DOS window (the cursor is on a new line, but there is no prompt)?

Wouldn't the best thing to be to configure the dos window to close on completion.

Absolutely, problem is I can't figure out how that is done.  My first thought is to include the following:

@echo off
java MyAWTApplication
exit

but the DOS window remains open during the life of the AWT app window and after the AWT app window has been closed.  The DOS cursor just hangs with no prompt.

In my case the window closes automatically, don know why yours doesn't (are you sure your app has ended?) on the other hand you can use javaw instead of java to open the app without any DOS window.
