[REWARD] Starting and stopping programs through an applet [REWARD]
Hey guys, a friend of my family has offered me my first programming job/project thing and I need to be able to start and stop a local Apache Tomcat Server through an applet.
I'm wondering, how does someone control other programs through an applet? Are there some process-controlling classes or something like that?
Well, if anyone can help me, I have $10-$20 in paypal to give to anyone who wants it and can help me.
Its not much, and certainly not enough to come close to compensating for the knowledge some of you guys have, but it's all I got. Heh, maybe you can get a couple candy bars and a marble or something with it, XD
I'll explain it a bit better
Hey guys, thanks for the quick responses. Let me try to explain what I'm trying to do a bit better.
I have a program which edits a .txt file. Whenever these files are updated, I assume that my application will keep on using the old un-edited version of this .txt file. The .txt file is a log file which holds values my last-used settings.
So, the only way I can think of that would "update" my .txt file would be to restart tomcat. Is that correct?
thanks for responding so fast, you guys. And thanks in advance for the input i'll receive in response.
