Hi

I am executing shellscripts using runtime.getRuntime.exec method. It is taking the first request happily and allowing to do different operations on the site, but if he try to execute the second request immediately before completion of the first request of executing shell script, Server was hanging to take further requests. I am using WASCE server and Java 1.5

Any Help

Thanks
Pavan

A Simple Spring based Java File containing a method DStreamInstall.sh this file will be get invoked whenever a request(HTTPRequest) comes to this method .

This was under the menu called PackageInstall which will show all the  list of packages. when the user selects a package for the deployment this will invke the installDstream method that was there in the spring based java file. there in the installDstream method i am invoking the shell script DstreamInstall.sh

for the frst request to this method is doing good during the process of the first request it is not hanging at all and giving the responses for further requests if another request came in before completion of the first request(execution of the shellscript) then it is not allowing the user to do any other things.

Thanks

I would imagine it's pretty normal that a package manager (for all sorts of reasons) would not support concurrent use

So it does not start the seocnd external process?
Or the second process never returns ?
Do you see bothe processes present if youcheck on Unix side ?

It is starting the second process as well, when the second process also running along with first process it is not allowing to do any other requests, it just hangs till the either process completes its execution

That's perfectly normal for a package manager. They're not designed for concurrent use since such use is normally never required

So you mean when the first is running uit allow to start the second one,
when two are running - it does not allow to start the third one?

But it waits and whjen they are completed it starts the third one ?

Yes that's right..in fact we are not able to submit any other request after second as our application  just hangs. So until on of the two started processes don't end we are not able to process anything

If it *does* support concurrent use (i'd be surprised) then make sure you're handling Runtime.exec (not trivial) correctly. See
