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 TerminatingJavaRuntimeState 1...State 2...*/
