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.


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:
