launching an automated telnet session using dtterm

Hi ,
I have to write a shell script which would be invoked from a Java program. The job of this script would be to launch a telnet session i was using dtterm for the same and the expect command to automate that.

spawn dtterm -e telnet <server ip address>

expect "Username:"
send "$username\r"
expect "Password:"
send "$pass\r"

The problem here ia m facing is that the above script which is executed from within a java program opens the dtterm as a child process over which i don't have any control in my java program.But i need to kill this tell session when my java programm is getting closed.

Could you tell me how to capture the process id of the this new dtterm process and send it back to my java code which would later kill this telnet session .

script - Makes a transcript of terminal session SYNOPSIS
script [-a] [file] The script command makes a transcript of everything printed on your terminal. OPTIONS
Appends the transcript to file rather than writing it to file. OPERANDS
The name of an output file that will contain the transcript of the session. If this parameter is omitted, the file typescript is written. DESCRIPTION
The transcript is written to file, or appended to file if the -a option is given. If no file name is given, the transcript is saved in the file typescript. The script ends when the forked shell exits. This program is useful when you are using a CRT and want a hard-copy record of the dialog (for example, a technical writer might create an example of a working session this way). If you specify the -a option and the file does not exist, it is created. If you do not specify the -a option and the file exists, it is replaced. RESTRICTIONS
The script command requires a streams based terminal. In single user mode, streams may not be enabled. Under these circumstances, script will exit with no action. If you are the superuser and need to run this command in single user mode, use the following special instruc- tions. Enabling Streams If it is necessary to enable a streams environment in the single user mode, enter the command /sbin/init.d/streams. This command is avail- able to the superuser only. SEE ALSO
Commands: autopush(8), cat(1), echo(1), strsetup(8), tee(1) System Administration script(1)
