Launching Java Program


Recommended Posts

I use a stock brokerage trading platform which is java based. The brokerage company automatically shuts down the program around 12:30 AM every day. I need to re-launch the program at 12:59 AM.


The manual method of launching the platform is for me to simply click on a desktop icon. After that, a login window pops up, where I enter a username and password.


I have run into several problems getting ME to launch the program and log in.


The first problem is this: The desktop icon I use to manualy launch the program does not have a simple "exe" file as its target. The target is:


C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\javaw.exe -cp jts.jar;jcommon-0.9.0.jar;jfreechart-0.9.15.jar;jhall.jar;other.jar -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true -Xmx160M jclient/LoginFrame C:\Jts


To solve that problem, I created a hotkey combination to launch the program, and used that hotkey combination in the ME script to get the platform launched. If anyone has a better suggestion please let me know.


The second problem is the login window. ME apparently can not "read" it since it is not really a "windows" window, and because of that, I can't get ME to type in my username/password in that window.


Any advice on how to get ME to "find" that window so it can then login for me?

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\javaw.exe -cp jts.jar;jcommon-0.9.0.jar;jfreechart-0.9.15.jar;jhall.jar;other.jar -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true -Xmx160M jclient/LoginFrame C:\Jts


Try this bit of code to launch the program and avoid the need for the hotkey

<LAUNCHDEL2:0:01C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\javaw.exe<PARAM>-cp jts.jar;jcommon-0.9.0.jar;jfreechart-0.9.15.jar;jhall.jar;other.jar -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true -Xmx160M jclient/LoginFrame C:\Jts>
