Hi
I have a requirement where I have a Appworx scheduler on a Unix box .. and on the network I have a .exe file on Windows NT machine. Is there a way I can schedule it on Appworx.

Thankx

not that I know of, at least not directly.

You could write 2 programs, one running on either machine.
The one on the *nix box sends a signal over the network when run, this one you schedule.
The one on the NT box listens for this signal and if it receives it starts your Windows application.

You may be able to run your program using Wine (See http://www.winehq.org).

I can't see where this has anything to so with "Java in General (Advanced)", so I'm going to move this thread to our Linux/UNIX forum for followup.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
