When I am running any jar file, java.exe is shown in the task list of XP SP3
When I am running any java based website again , java.exe is shown in the task list of XP SP3

Now, I want to get which jar file is invoking that java.exe in the task list by C#. Is it possible? If possible, how?

Thanx

The actual Java program which you are running from the point of view of the system (XP) is the
argument of command line command wwith which you start java virtual machine.
If you have a tool which could retrieve command lie argument(s) of the task - not just the name
of the program itself - this tool will print you the name of the initial class which Java VM uses to start
excution. As far as I know in task manager you just see only java.exe.
There may exist some tools whch also retrive command line arguments - those should help.

Its not possible
for a start jar files do not invoke java.exe
java.exec May use one or more jars, but a jar file may also not be involved at all.
And just because a jar file is on the command line in no way implies that is actually being used.
Lastly many other jars that are not on the command line could also be being used by the process
