How to execute a command from Java in Linux?

I am trying to execute a command from Java in linux, like this:
cmd = ..... ;
Process x = Runtime.getRuntime().exec( cmd );
But my problem is I need to setup some shell variables for my Linux command?
How can I do that?
And I am running this Runtime.getRuntime().exec() in my own
Thank you for any tips.

You can run the command inside of a short shell script, which would set up the shell variables, and then call the actual command.
