That doesn't make much sense. What are you really trying to accomplish?

The thing that I am really trying to accomplish is described below :

1. I want to run a batch(.bat) file with some parameter using Runtime.getRuntime().exec command.
2. As soon as the above batch will be called the current page will be forwarded to another page.

Problem I am facing:-

i) When I am using the below code the batch is running but not in a separate process because after the Runtime.getRuntime
().exec is called untill the batch processing ends the page is NOT getting forwarded to another page.So it is taking longer time to forward to next page. I want it to be immediately forwarded to next page.

ii) Now If I run the below code removing the getErrorStream() snippet the batch is not getting called.

I am confused.
Please help.
I agree. Here's the link:
