well you need to interface the windows api. what if the user is running
unix? what then, will it still count the windows? i doubt it. perhaps
your solution would be in the from of C. i suggest you use C, but even
then its not ideal. you could try using JNI, but then you will have
written something close to C++, so why not write  a client program  in

sorry about wordy reply, javascript could possibly count the browser
windows, why do you need this? are you trying to see if a user has a
window already open?

why are you writing such a fragile system that needs to know the number
of client windows? i do not think your system requires this. re think
the way you have developed things and sort out where your weakness is
that the number of client windows is important then redesign.

sorry, but java  was not developed for this purpose. if the client
windows is important, then perhaps you should write  in c++ so that you
can restrict the number of open client programs through use of the
windows api.

total browser  windows or only for a specific client?
for a specific client, u can put a counter in the session object.
for total browser windows, u can count the sessionIDs used, one client may
have more than one windows with the same session ID, but this is not the
normal behavior...
