I need to run the following dos command in jsp:

1. exec C:\Graphviz\bin\dot.exe

2. java GM_Show_Graph list allProductList //list out all product in sequential order under product folder

3. java GM_Show_Graph productid + id graphFile productid //where id is a get parameter when <a href=graph.jsp?id=<10>>click</a>

4. run dot to create jpg image on local folder under C:\tmp

Process process = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("dot -Tjpg -o + Graph_FILE_NAME + ".jpg " + Graph_FILE_NAME);

5. Display the C:\tmp\Graph_FILE_NAME.jpg on jsp page

How should I write the servlet code inside <% %> to run the DOS command and display the image on jsp page?
