This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Probably because here's no "cls.exe"; it's a command built into the shell. You'd have to exec something like "cmd /E cls" -- i.e., run the shell, and tell it to execute the cls command.
But -- and this is a big "but" -- that shell wouldn't be connected to a terminal window; it takes input from the Java process. So the cls command would have no effect!
There are two ways to clear a terminal window from a Java program: first, send a (platform dependent) escape sequence to the terminal to clear it (Google for "ANSI escape codes" to learn more) or just print a bunch of blank lines to make the contents of the screen scroll away!
