So.. when the test2.file is in the same location as of ..... in my code i'm executing the cmd line like this
Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime();
String cmd = "java test2";
cmd = cmd + " "+ data ; // parameters 89 89
Process proc = rt.exec(cmd);
System.out.println("do something");
... now i want to know what do i have to write so that i can access the if it's under two folders
I have tried writing
String cmd = "my/my1>java test2";
