    Default how to specify location of opened window

    hi i am writeing a small app to automate some actions on my computer this requires me to open an application and click on a button i am using
    Process child0 = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("/home/user/application");to do this. The problem is every time it opens at a different lcation on the screen so i cannot click on it using the robot class due to x,y coordinates being different every time. with selenium you can use .setlocation(x,y) method but how can this be done for other applications.

    any help or ideas would be great thanks
