Hello everyone,

I have a problem. I need to execute an exe. I have tried with a simple main method and it works like a charm. But as I try to integrate into Tomcat, it hangs. The program uses pdftohtml to convert a pdf into html.

Here is the code:


It hangs just before the waitFor().
Have you guys any idea how to solve this?
Many thanks.

PS: I tried this with tomcat bundled with Netbeans 5.

I just answered this question in the Servlets forum. It is considered impolite to post the same question to multiple forums. There is nothing Tomcat specific in this question and really it has nothing to do with servlets..
