You can terminate the Java runtime that you are in programmatically. The Java Runtime class provides a method halt(argument) to support this. Of course, caution is advised when using this method to terminate an applications.

public class TerminatingJavaRuntime
{
   public static void main(String args[])
   {
      TerminatingJavaRuntime terminatingJavaRuntime = new TerminatingJavaRuntime();
      terminatingJavaRuntime.proceed();
   }
   
   private void proceed()
   {
      System.out.println("State 1...");
      System.out.println("State 2...");
      Runtime.getRuntime().halt(0);
      System.out.println("State 3.");
   }
}

/*

Expected output:

[root@mypc]# java TerminatingJavaRuntime
State 1...
State 2...
