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.
Here's some code that I've used to run an executable and pass in command line arguments.
Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime(); Process prcs = rt.exec("/prd1/exe/udms mod 4rw salary gen con <infile.txt >/dev/null"); prcs.waitFor();
In this example, udms is the executable, the rest of it is command line arguments particular to this application. Hopefully this will help you get started. You're also going to have to handle IOException and InterruptedException. Hope this helps.
