Hi,
Im currently in a situation to get all the application name that is currently running in windows but i can get only the processes that is currently running using the following code

Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("tasklist.exe /v ");

Can anyone help me out in getting the application name...
Thanks in advance.

You need to parse the output of the tasklist, something like this:

import java.io.BufferedReader;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.InputStreamReader;


public class AppList {
	
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		try {
			Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("tasklist.exe /FO LIST");
			BufferedReader in
			   = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(p.getInputStream()));
			String str = in.readLine();
			while (str!=null) {
				if (str.startsWith("Image Name:")) {
					String appName = str.substring(11).trim();
					System.out.println(appName);
				}				
				str = in.readLine();
			}
		} catch (IOException e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		}
	}

}

What do you mean by application name? If it is the Window Title, then you can change lines:
Line 10:

Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("tasklist.exe /v /FO LIST");

Line 15-16:

if (str.startsWith("Window Title:")) {
String appName = str.substring(13).trim();
