Oracle applications

We are using Oracle/Java applications in our Business for POS Retail.
We have a problem where we try to open a secondary program over the top of the main program.
Secondary program opens behind the main window and we need it to open over the top as the machines we use in our stores are locked down and we have a lot of non IT users in the stores. So having to minimize the the main program to see the secondary program is not an option.

Does anyone know a way of getting a secondary program to open over the top.

You mean you're opening an app in a POS machine? Isn't the POS app running full-screen?

CEHJ - Yes the POS App runs full screen but we have another Oracle system which they can access from the POS App and it will not run over the top of the POS App, which we need it to do.
Another thing is because we use a proxy.pac script we get a lot of java expected errors which I am wondering if this is another reason why the app will not load on top.

Wasimibm - I found this also but was not sure where to use it or how. Do you have any suggestions - I am new Java and Oracle systems and so not sure how to use that script.

To help you further, you need to show us some code, how the call to the second jsp is invoked...

afaik the only reliable way to manage windows 'globally' is in native code. You could probably do that without intervention in the code of either app with the right approach

If I can do this without changing Java that would be great. Would you suggest I use Group Policy for this.
I have a Java developer looking at the stack overflow part but want to see if I can control the applications with Windows.

While this is all being discussed, i'm going to introduce an issue that's actually more important - though you might not see it that way at the moment. You do realise that you've got a potentially very dangerous group of factors from a security standpoint?
