I want to execute DOS command "net config workstation" from jsp file. When i execute the below snippet from simple java class it is executing and giving me the output. But once i tried to execute this from JSP file or calling a java method where this code snippet is wriiten to JSP file, it is not execting.

final String dosCommand = "net config workstation";
final Process process = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(dosCommand);
final InputStream in = process.getInputStream();
System.out.println(" in length " +;

From the simple java application class i get the in length value 67 but through JSP it is -1.

Any one please help if you have any idea on this.

This is not something you should be doing in a JSP. In fact, modern JSPs should not contain any Java code. Leave the code in Java class.
