    First, your question makes very little sense. If you are using a translator - I recommend finding a new one. If you are not using a translator and english is your second (or third, or fourth) language, think about using one. If english is your first language, I highly recommend thinking about your question and writing ideas down prior to posting.

    Second, from what I could understand, you want to launch an external process using java. Look at the Runtime.exec method. Also have a look at the following

    Ease up folks. Where he is saying why, I think he means how.

    I don't know about Processing or any tools that convert source code? from Processing to Java.

    In reply to your other points..

    Yes, you can launch a Java program from the command line using, for example, the command java myMainClass.

    You can launch a Java GUI using javaw.exe or preparing a jar file using the java jar utility.

    You can launch another application from a java application using a java API class called "Runtime".
