hello, i'm a beginner in using java in linux, maybe you can help me with this problem:
i need to execute an exe file from java...how do i do this? for example i have an application named sga, in linux we execute this as ./sga right? how about if i want to execute it within a java program? apparently, this doesn't work:
Runtime run = Runtime.getRuntime (); Process pp = run.execute ("./sga");
note that sga and my java code are in the same directory. Am i doing this correctly? thank you. hope you can help me on this one. Will appreciate it a lot!
Somebody on the ranch referred to this old article, which says one has to redirect the .out and .err PrintStreams. Otherwise what happens is that your ./sga program executes and you don't see any output.
That might be your problem.
