    Question Interprocess communication between Java and non-java program

    Hi, I'm developing a program which requires the program to interact with another program, say Media Player Classic.

    Basically, say there is a play button on this Java program, when clicked, will send a 32(space in ascii) to Media Player Classic like pressing space while on Media Player Classic. Are there any Java library that does this?

    What do you mean by "send to"? How is the other program expecting to receive an input while it is running?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Welcome to the forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code in code or highlight tags and other useful info for new members.

    Existing programs that allow input/stimulation/interaction with other programs write interfaces for that exchange and usually publish an API (or similar) that describes how the interface works, how to program to it, etc. Search for the program name + API, extension, plugin, etc. to see if an interface exists and is documented.

    For simple interprocess communication, you can use plain old sockets to communicate between Java applications. Objects can be serialized and transmitted over sockets.

    They have a package in java specifically for media players and sounds. jsdk1.4.3 and higher has APIs for that purpose. Netbeans is a program that finalizes all steps necessary to building a website. The only problem is there are many intermediate steps before the final green light, complete. It takes all projects and develops it by steps and parts.

    Thread started 3.5 years ago, poster (never heard from again) ignored the advice given and didn't answer the questions asked. Closing.
