I found it also in the official "application" module, application:info() , (which is 
calling application_controller internally) , but it is not specified in the 
Is there any other documented and reliable way ?.

I got a way to get the application StartType using the below interface.
But this module is an internal module within the Kernel application and not documented or recommended to be used externally.

Dear all,
    Is there a way to know the start type for currently started applications?.
asking because I have a live system with applications started on top of
it. Some of these application started as temporary and others started
as permanent. I need now to know only which are started as permanent to
stop and re-start again as temporary.
I know I can stop all
applications and start them again with the default type (temporary),
but I'm seeking for a way to only stop those are needed to be stopped.
