I need to launch an external application (i.e. Corel Draw) from an applet AND be aware of when the application is closed... is it possible?


Is there any chance that I can know the place where a file is saved with that application?

thanks in advance.

Tis is very difficult, if not impossible. First of all you need a signed applet in order to access the client's machine. Then you would be able to spawn external processes, and monitor if the processes are killed. If you know the directory where the files are stored, you might be able to monitor that directory.... Using an applet gives a lot of security constraints, and for obvious reasons....
