can i close an application in Java  i thought you meant your own app

you have to use the windows api to do this.  To use the windows api, you have to call a dll function using JNI.

If you want to do this, here is what your exported native function would look like:

#include <windows.h>
#include <jni.h>
#include "JavaClass.h"

Java_JavaClass_closeNotepad(JNIEnv *env, jobject obj)
    HWND wndHandle = FindWindow("Notepad",NULL);
