How to finish an android application?

I need to finish an android application. For that i wrote

@Override
public void onBackPressed() {
AlertDialog.Builder builder = new AlertDialog.Builder(this);
builder.setMessage("Are you sure You want to exit")
.setCancelable(false)
.setPositiveButton("YES"),
new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
// On
// clicking
// "Yes"
// button

public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog,int id) {
System.out.println(" onClick ");
closeApplication(); // Close Application method called
}
})
.setNegativeButton("NO"),
new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
// On
// clicking
// "No"
// button
public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog,int id) {
dialog.cancel();
}
});

AlertDialog alert = builder.create();
alert.show();
}

private void closeApplication() {
System.out.println("closeApplication ");
this.finish();
}
}


But if any activity is not finished in the application, when i tried to exit the application that activity is finished first and the application is not exiting.. i tried 2 times to exit this application... How i can finish all the activities in an application when i need to exit... or is there any way to finish the entire application

Answer

whenever you are starting a new activity use

myintent.addFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP);
startActivity(myintent);

and in manifest file mention that activity as

<activity android:name=".<Activity Name>" >
        <intent-filter>
        <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW"/>
     <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
     </intent-filter>
       </activity>
