a script for loading a library and running java
Posted on 2004-08-31
I have a java application (bundled in myjar.jar) that uses a native library (libMyLibrary.so).
I need a script that will do the following:
1. append to LD_LIBRARY_PATH the path to libMyLbrary.so (this is the same path as the one where the script will be located and run from, so actually append the path of the script). i understand this is done with "setenv" for tcsh and csh and with "export" for bash shell. i would like it to work for all shells.
2. execute the command java -jar myjar.jar (which will start my java app)
if this is easy, i'm sorry for bothering, but i'm a total beginner in Linux.
