Hi all!
im trying to pass values from my script to java (to the main method).
i have seen in different forums how its done but im still not successful.
my script is very long so ill put only whats important:

im getting input from the user like this
print -n "Enter a number "; read NUM

before running the command im preparing it like this:
COMMAND="${JAVA_HOME}/bin/java"
COMMAND="${COMMAND} ${JAVA_DEBUG} ${JAVA_ARGS}"
COMMAND="${COMMAND} com.pack.css.impl.myClass $NUM"

and then i run the command
the class works fine, all the calls are correct but in the main(String[] args) the args array is null

i know the array is null because i am looking at it in a debug mode

what am I doing wrong??
any suggestions??

THANKS A LOT

What gets displayed when you type "echo $COMMAND"?


An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
