    Default JAVA: Run .exe in jpanel (NetBeans)

    Hi developers,

    I have a code like this: try {

    System.out.println("Creating process..");
    Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("C:\\Windows\\System32\\ notepad.exe");
    InputStream in = p.getInputStream();
    for (int i=0;i<in.available();i++)
    {
    System.out.println("df"+in.read());
    }

    Thread.sleep(10000);
    p.destroy();
    }catch (Exception ex)
    {
    ex.printStackTrace();
    }



    My purpose is to execute a .exe file in a jpanel.
    I have a jpanel and is there any feasible way to add .exe into the jpanel?

    Pls advise, thank you!

    Can you explain what you want to happen? What happens when you execute the posted code?

    A method in a class that extends then JPanel class should be able to use one of the java classes and methods that will execute a .exe program.

    Hi, this is because I will create a unity3d which is the rendering of 3D motion and I wanted to integrate that interface into interface in java application.
    So the unity3d is built to .exe and so I want to run it from the java application (but the interfaces are all display in JPanel, that why I wanted my .exe to run in the jpanel)

    Hope this is clearer to you.

    Thank you!

    What problem are you having executing the .exe program?
    What happens when you execute the posted code? What do you want the program to do differently?

    Hi, I do not have any problem executing the open .exe code above.
    Just that I have a jpanel p and I wanted to run the .exe in jpanel so I tried something stupid like p.add(*the cmd to open .exe*);

    But turns out there is no suitable method for jpanel(process) found..

    So is there any other way? because my UI in java application is organised by jpanels. that why's I wanted to put .exe into jpanel..

    Any method in a class that extends the JPanel class can run an .exe file. I don't see what the problem is.
    When the .exe program executes it will be in its own OS process and open its own windows as it desires.
    Read the API doc for the Process class for more information.

    What do you mean by "run the .exe in jpanel"?

    Means like usually when I run the program .exe, it will open a window..
    But instead of open a new window, it will show in a JPanel to display.. Thank you

    I don't know of any way to get the window of a .exe program to display as the contents of a JPanel.
