And to the OP - do you now see the advantage of actually
*describing* the problem domain, rather than simply give a
vague description and 'what you want to do'?

Is OP me here?

Yes. OP stands for the 'Original Poster' - the person
that started the thread.

...I think I described my question clearly. Here is what I
posted here in this thread,

"I want to write a java program A to launch another java app B. I hope I
could configure the argument of VM to launch java app B, just like what
Eclipse JDT does.(Eclipse is a java program, and it could launch other
java apps.) I do not want to create a new thread for java app B. I
prefer to run java app B on another process separately."

Is the description vague?


...If there is something confusing, point it
out. I would like to improve my English skills. :)

Your english skills are fine. Apparently a lot better than
mine on the day I misread the question and made that
remark, ..or it's been a long thread and I missed some
details, or..(insert other pathetic excuses here) ;-)
