You'll need the process id of the process, then use kill -9 [pid] to kill the process.

buddies i myself found the solution to check whether the process is compleated or not:

solution
Code:
try{
        Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime();
        Process p = rt.exec("some command");
        while(true)
        {
           
           try{
             if(p.exitValue()==0)
             {
                 System.out.println("process terminated");
                 break;
             }
           }
          catch(Exception e)
          {
            System.out.println("process in execution..............");
          }
        
        }
        
        }
        
        catch(Exception e)
        {
            e.printStackTrace();            
        }
if there is some other solution let me know...........
