I'm writing something in Java that requires access to Windows XP local groups and users.
I'm trying to find a way to check whether a certain user or group exists, if the user is a part of a specific group or not, etc. Also, creating/deleting local users and groups.

What's the best way to do this?

use a command line tool like: net user , gpresult , etc

call it using Runtime.exec()

JNI or Runtime.exec() as suggested by hoomanv should be better option
