My purpose is to restart my Java application from within the application.
For this I have created a Java program that runs a sh file. This sh file has the command to start the same java Program.
when i run the parent Java program it executes the sh file and runs the Java Program in it in background. I want this program to run in foreground since the program takes inputs from the user. How can i make the program run in foreground.
Following is the code i use to execute the sh file
If I understand you correctly you should able to use the command "fg" to bring your background job to the foreground. However, I don't know how to put this running foreground job back to background because you are inside the java program. If you Ctrl+C you then exit the java program killing the job. At least that's what I got on my linux box.
