Here is an example.

Shell script (test.sh):

#!/bin/sh
env > test.txt

Java prog:

import java.io.*;

public class ShellTest {

    public static void main(String args[]) throws IOException, InterruptedException {
         Runtime runtime = Runtime.getRuntime();
         String command = "test.sh"
         Process process = runtime.exec(command);
         process.waitFor(); // block until completion
         return;    
   }
}

Compile and run, "test.txt" appears with the environment in it.
