Facing problem with running external exe from my java code

I have to run the exe from
code for which I m using Runtime and Process classes. The exe runs in the following way on command prompt
C:/ myexe -j [now press enter]
input sentence ! [now press enter]
And after this exe gives the output.
So is there any way to achieve this programmatically in Java?
here is my java code
public static void main(
File F = new File("C:/Chasen.exe");
Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime();
Process proc = rt.exec("C:/chasen.exe");
in = proc.getInputStream();
br = new
int a = in.read();
String res = br.readLine();
res = br.readLine();
catch (Exception IOEx)
I am not able to pass the arguments to exe which consists of '[-j] [press enter key] [statemet !] [press enter key] [press enter key ]'
Thanks in advance
