mport java.io.*;
public class exec
{
public static void main(String[]argv)
{

Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime();
Process prcess = rt.exec("/bin/sh","-c","/APPS/webcust/car/docs/me/apis/charlie.sh");

What does this script do? What error are you getting?
If the script outputs anything, you need to explicitly handle the output.

the sh file its just a test, it creates a txt file with the date, thats all, but its the first step before the real one (execute a c program, who execute various programs and updates on 4 db's, etc).
i dont recipe any error msg, just the sime HTTP 500 Internal Server Error
The page cannot be displayed
thanks

I'm somewhat puzzled that the source you show is definately not a JSP - it's just a regular Java command-line class. If you are expecting a server to execute this file you are likely to be disappointed.
Do you have any other working jsp files to look at?

Thats just super - you throw away the anquished cries of the Java Runtime as it attempts to communicate with you.

Ernst,
It creates a text file and puts it where?
