I have a batch file that runs fine.

How can I run this with logging to file on the second command only?

This works fine when I run it
I just want to log results of the executeable to a txt file

@echo off
cd "c:\program files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin"

java -cp m5.jar;m5-data-objects.jar;webservices-rt.jar;log4j-1.2.13.jar org.m5.sdk.hostedconnect.v2.MonitorMultipleExample

add this to the end of your command line :  > log.txt

java -cp m5.jar;m5-data-objects.jar;webservices-rt.jar;log4j-1.2.13.jar org.m5.sdk.hostedconnect.v2.MonitorMultipleExample > log.txt

You just redirect the output with ">SomeFile" (will erase an existing file before writing) or ">>SomeFile" (will add to an existing file):
@echo off
cd "c:\program files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin"

java -cp m5.jar;m5-data-objects.jar;webservices-rt.jar;log4j-1.2.13.jar org.m5.sdk.hostedconnect.v2.MonitorMultipleExample >"C:\The\file.log" 2>&1

Open in new window

The "2>&1" redirects stdout (where most program write their error output) to the file, too.

Just noticed an error: the last line in my previous post should of course have been 'The "2>&1" redirects stderr (where most program write their error output) to the file, too."
