Hi

I was just studying about Process and Runtime class and tried few example and got struck with the below problem.

I am trying to call another java program using differnt JDK by apssing argument.

But the problem is when the argument contain spaces i put them inside the " but still it consider them as two arguments.

Please help.



After running this code the length of argument is 2 instead of 1.

When i display the passed arguments in another class,it is showing as two arguments namely "Test and Sample" instead of Test Sample.


SCJP 6,SCWCD 5,SCBCD 5

Failure is not an option.

Did you try to use java.lang.Runtime#exec(java.lang.String[]) instead ?

Make sure to read the article by Michael Daconta called "when Runtime.exec() won't" before using Runtime.exec().
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
