I need to kill the process activemq-all-5.5.1.jar(....\app-launcher\target\lib\activemq-all-5.5.1.jar). I use taskkill /im java.exe, but it kills all other applications related with java. I need to close this specific application only. Anyone can please help me? Thanks in advance.

  • Did you look at other taskkill options? technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb491009 – Germann Arlington Jul 18 '12 at 10:07
  • Voted for serverfault.com. It seems more a question for admins that for powerusers trying to do some thing once. – helios Jul 18 '12 at 12:16


wmic process get  /format:csv

you can get detailed information about running process. you can be more specific with something like:

wmic process get processid,name,commandline /format:csv

or something like

 wmic process  get processid,name,commandline /format:csv | find "activemq"

and parse the result to get the exact PID (if you know the exact commandline ,process name or pid it will be easy). In this cases it convenient to start a process and get it's pid immediately.
