I have to create a scheduled task in which i have to run  4 separate applications -

1. java -jar cleaner.exe  --- cleans a file
2. sqlldr  --to load clean data
3. java -jar regulator.exe ---- compares new data with old data
4. java -jar findposition.exe - finds position for each record.

I want these application to run one after other. So sqlldr should not run until cleaner has finished cleaning and so on...

Now if I create a single batch file to run all the above applications, will all of these run in a sequence?

Yes, in an ordinary .bat they will run sequentially.


Another approach may be:

1) run them from another JAVA program
2) join them and call their 'main()'-s from another class

Everything is good.

depends on the application, and whether it completes processing before exitting.

Let's assume that or it will be very complex.

hi,

as mebtioned earlier in ordinary batch file it will run sequentially but there r prob .

so the best way i to use ant. in ant u can specify a dependency for a job to excute.that is for example the sqlldr will run only after the succesfull excution of its dependency job lets say cleaner.exe.

i think ant bulider is a best way to run this process.

Look at the java open source scheduling technology called Quartz:

Off topic!
the question was: Now if I create a single batch file to run all the above applications, will all of these run in a sequence?

And the answer is YES.

like if i type in a batch file -
notepad.exe
notepad.exe
notepad.exe

And if I run this batch file,
It wont open the next notepad until the previous one is closed!!!

Would the same thing happen with java.exe and sqlldr.exe???

The word 'batch' refers to a sequence, so it's the same everywhere
and has been over 50 years.
