Hi,

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.

Thanks
Vinod

Welcome to the Ranch. Please take note that there are multiple forums here, each devoted to an area of Java. This forum is for questions on Servlets. I have moved this post to a more appropriate forum for you.
