You have to use JNI for sure..
How let me give you a hint
if you are talking about windows os

Use SetWindowsHookEx to create a hook for WH_SHELL.
In your ShellProc handle HSHELL_WINDOWCREATED.
After you've launched your app, start waiting.
For each new window created, your ShellProc will be called.
For each window call GetWindowThreadProcessId(hWnd, &dwProcessID);
Compare the dwProcessID of the newly created window with the processid you got from CreateProces.
If those two processids are not equal you've found the window for the new application .

Hope it helps ;)
