Java that runs like a .bat?
Ok so I was trying to accomplish opening 4 .exe's with delays inbetween each opening. Why do I need this? Because these .exe's must be fully loaded before the next one opens or it won't load properly. One establishes a MYSQL virtual server, one loads the databases from the MYSQL VS, the next opens the tables and the other loads the game server. Now if they don't open in this exact order, or they load before the previous program completes loading it will error out and terminate.
Now I was scouring the internet for how to do this in a bat file but to no avail. Everything required the other window to close, or user input. I'm trying to make it completely automated. I have no problem hard coding the timer into the program because it always takes the same amount of time to load.
Is there a way to make a Java program load an exe, not inside itself but like the start notepad.exe command in a batch file would? I'm not asking for a handout here, but any pointers in the right direction of discovery would help me alot. I haven't found anything that makes sense on google. Then again over 75% of the pages on google are blocked on my connection...
