Save this code in a file called OutputCapture.java (case sensitive), compile'it like : javac OutputCapture.java, and runnit like java OutputCapture.

I see that you are using the ls command (Linux specific). If you are Windows user, change the line : String cmd = "ls -al"; into String cmd = "dir *.*";
