Ok ive used this sites search engine, been on other sites but i can never get the info im looking, for please help;
i) Ok theres this game, upon creating a server for the game, you are provided with a command prompt window as displayed below, this acts as a console where u can type commands to adjust the server variables and events taking place on the server (in game) are displayed, my question is how could i (instead of typing) get my java program to 'print' strings in this window?

ii) With regards to the same command prompt window, how would I read lines from this window into my program?
iii) In the context of the above command prompt window, how would i make my program constantly monitor the command prompt window and process each new line of text as it appears, almost like a listener but for the occurence of text?
iv) Can java programs only be compiled to .exe's using specialized software? If so what is the best free software i can aquire to do this?
Your help and answers would be greatly appreciated
*Warning there very well might be follow up questions to the above, i only just matriculated, that combined with a little further exploration of java coding is the limit of my experience and knowledge
