I am a new-bie to Java.
So please excuse me for my mistakes.

I have a requirement wherein I need to execute Unix commands/shell scripts
)eg: copying directories, making tar files, executing shell scripts on Unix)
from windows application as the application is developed and running on Windows platform.(Oracle Forms)

Please let me know how do I go about doing it. (Guess I need to use Java here). Appreciate your help.
