Hi All,

This is not homework.

I have Win2k with NT

From what I have seen and tried so far: javap requests are made from a open DOS page, and can be stored in a  file such as  "output.txt"

I would like to issue that javap request from a java program into a  "output.txt".

Sample would be appreciated.

sudhakar_koundinya,
Please comment on each of your gifts. A run of
DumpMethods shows a empty text file.  What of javap was it accessing?


And run of method1 and similarily what of javap was it accessing ?

As I said earlier I have dumped the DOS statement in to the output.txt by using this DOS statement:

C:\j2sdk1.4.2_05\bin>javap java.awt.AWTKeyStroke>output.txt

I hope that you can clarify.

DumpMethods is used to find the methods of java class

import java.lang.reflect.*;
import java.io.*;
 
   public class DumpMethods {
      public static void main(String args[])
      {
         try {
            FileOutputStream fout=new FileOutputStream("c:\\output.txt");
            Class c = Class.forName(args[0]);
            Method m[] = c.getDeclaredMethods();
            for (int i = 0; i < m.length; i++)
{
          fout.write(m[i].toString().getBytes());
         fout.write("\r\n".getBytes());
}
         }
         catch (Throwable e) {
            System.err.println(e);
         }
      }
   }

here is how you should execute

java DumpMethods java.lang.String

or

java DumpMethods java.util.Vector

the output you see in c:\Output.txt

The otherway what you are expecting is this

  try {
        // Execute command
           FileOutputStream fout=new FileOutputStream("c:\\output.txt");
        String command = "c:\\jdk1.4\bin\javap.exe "+class;
        Process child = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(command);
   
        // Get the input stream and read from it
        InputStream in = child.getInputStream();
        int c;
        while ((c = in.read()) != -1) {
              fout.write(c);
        }
        in.close();
    } catch (IOException e) {
    }

Execute like this

java JavaP java.lang.String c:\output.txt

sudhakar_koundinya,

You have overwhelmed me with options and I really thank you for your efforts to show me
the various choices.

A comment on these samples directly above:
      String command = "c:\\jdk1.4\bin\javap.exe "+class;
        Process child = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(command);
   
        // Get the input stream and read from it
        InputStream in = child.getInputStream();
There is an illegal escape character in the String command after the word "bin"...... BUT
please don't correct.  I did not use that.


For the record here: in terms of the implications for javap:
I am using j2sdk1.4.2_05 and have downloaded just one page: the tree view downloaded

from:      http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/
 
But with this list  NOW I can read anyone of the classes are listed in the tree format.  If I

pause for a moment over the class name, the Package from which the class name was a

part of appears.  This is information is a part of the "hint"

This is my program that I give here as part of the record of this Q. You should see  your

efforts in my program. I have Win2K with NT.

Thanks again.
