Windows process name for java apps

gdrnec asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I run a number of Java apps and through the course of a day
In order to kill a crashed java app, I go to the Windows Task Manager -> Processes tab and here I have a problem.
All java apps are called either javaw.exe or java.exe and I don't know which process is which.
Is there anyway that I can hand in an argument -D to display the actual instance name or something to help me identify which java process is for which program?
