Hello,

I tried to execute a FORTRAN program by using Runtime.exec() under Linux platform. I am using Java Tomcat 1.4.1.29.
However, the FORTRAN application hang forever, which usally takes about 2 minutes to finish.

I have no problem to run it under console based stand alone application.

The codes is as follows:

                /* make a shell script*/
                BufferedWriter bw2=new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter(currentDir+"/pentran.script"));
                bw2.write("#!/bin/sh"+ "\n");
                bw2.write("cd "+currentDir+"/"+"\n");
                bw2.write("echo sample.f90 "+" | "+" /opt/tomcat/pentran/pentran" );
                bw2.close();

               /*create a process*/
                Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime();
               
               /*chmod permission*/
                Process changeMode = rt.exec( "chmod 755 " + currentDir + "/pentran.script" );

                Process pr = rt.exec(currentDir+"/pentran.script");

Does anyone have any ideas?

Best Regards,
Peng

I know very little in this area, but can I suggest you try this

put diagnostics between each main area, so you can identify where exactly the delay is, then tackle that


// DIAG1 - DISPLAY "About to create Buffer" and also show  date/time
               /* make a shell script*/
                BufferedWriter bw2=new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter(currentDir+"/pentran.script"));

// DIAG2 - DISPLAY "About to create file" and also show  date/time

                bw2.write("#!/bin/sh"+ "\n");
                bw2.write("cd "+currentDir+"/"+"\n");
                bw2.write("echo sample.f90 "+" | "+" /opt/tomcat/pentran/pentran" );
                bw2.close();

// DIAG3 - DISPLAY "About to create process" and also show  date/time
               /*create a process*/
                Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime();
               
// DIAG4 - DISPLAY "About to change perms of script" and also show  date/time
               /*chmod permission*/
                Process changeMode = rt.exec( "chmod 755 " + currentDir + "/pentran.script" );

// DIAG5 - DISPLAY "About to run script" and also show  date/time

                Process pr = rt.exec(currentDir+"/pentran.script");

// DIAG6 - DISPLAY "end" and also show  date/time
