I have writen an application in Visual Basic.  This application is invoked from a program which is writen in java.
The java program waits until my application has finished and then continues.
The question is .. How do I pass an integer (ie. an error code) back to the java program ?? (or just out of the VB application at the end of Sub Main .. No forms in this App.)

Use the following:

Public Declare Sub ExitProcess Lib "kernel32" (ByVal uExitCode As Long)

Then at the end of Sub Main

ExitProcess 50& (or whatever integer you want)

Use ExitProcess() only after freeing all objects, and unloading all forms.
