Executing a remote command on a unix server

How can I execute a unix command on a remote server. This server is different than the server that contains the java class.

I have 3 different unix servers involved. Basically I have to execute a checkout command on server A to get the current version of a file. Then I have to move the file to the production server C.

Thanks

You can use a SSH implmentation but it sounds more like you're using CVS to me - why not use a Java CVS implementation?

if this is part of your build process then use ant.
If its your application then here's an example of calling an external command:

How do we use SSH? One of the servers is PVCS versioning software.
 I guess I will still end up using the runtime call in java?

probably.

ant has a task for accessing PVCS, you may be able to take the code from that and use it in your application.
