I have this code in my java testclass. Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime(); rt.exec("C:/winnt/system32/notepad.exe"); If I run this class file in Command prompt it is opening notepad.exe but the problem is if i copy same code into my servlet it is not openning notepad.exe. Even if i take an instance of my class in the servlet still it is not calling notpad.exe and it is not giving any error. Can anybody help me. Thanks in advance.
Hello , I tried ur code and it works fine on my machine. As my times I click on the refresh window, those many notepad applications are opening . Anyway , Just wanted to tell u that In servlet making use of Runtime classes will open the apl;ication or execute the application on the server and not the client side .

Hi If I want to run an application in client machine what should I do. I am using java, jsp, and servlets. Thanks, kodali
