You can add code to the window adapter that handles events connected with closing a window. This allows things like "are you sure you want to exit" type dialogs, as well as any other code. Look up the class, WindowAdapter in the Java API documentation.

From Java im not sure. You will need to register an interest with the system for an on shutdown event. Check the Microsoft Java API, but i doubt there will be anything there. Failing that look up on MSDN (msdn.microsoft.com) about registering an interest in system shutdown event. Then you will need to write some jni code that watchs for a system shutdown and passes on the information to the Java code.

(Assuming you are talking about Windows that is)

Try using addShutdownHook() method in runtime class:

Runtime.getRuntime().addShutdownHook(mythread);
