Hi,

I am trying below example
http://www.avajava.com/tutorials/lessons/how-do-i-run-another-application-from-java.html?page=2
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.InputStream;
import java.io.InputStreamReader;

public class RuntimeExecTest2 {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		try {
			Runtime runTime = Runtime.getRuntime();
			Process process = runTime.exec("java -classpath C:\\tutorials test.TestOutput");
			InputStream inputStream = process.getInputStream();
			InputStreamReader isr = new InputStreamReader(inputStream);
			InputStream errorStream = process.getErrorStream();
			InputStreamReader esr = new InputStreamReader(errorStream);

			int n1;
			char[] c1 = new char[1024];
			StringBuffer standardOutput = new StringBuffer();
			while ((n1 = isr.read(c1)) > 0) {
				standardOutput.append(c1, 0, n1);
			}
			System.out.println("Standard Output: " + standardOutput.toString());

			int n2;
			char[] c2 = new char[1024];
			StringBuffer standardError = new StringBuffer();
			while ((n2 = esr.read(c2)) > 0) {
				standardError.append(c2, 0, n2);
			}
			System.out.println("Standard Error: " + standardError.toString());
		} catch (IOException e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		}
	}

Well, there will be some output - an error message if you haven't got

java -classpath C:\\tutorials test.TestOutput

in your classpath.

java -classpath C:\\tutorials test.TestOutput

in your classpath.

Do i supposed to give that in double quotes as  i am giving. What is 'test' here.
Do i supposed to create that folder under C directory before executing this program. please advise

>java -classpath c:/ee_q_code KeyReact

Just like that, no quotes, etc.

. . .  where "c:/ee_q_code" is where your .class file resides, and "KeyReact" is that class.

I created this and ran it and it worked for me on Win 7.  

"test" is the package name.  So, put your compiled classes in c:\tutorials\test

Then run:

java -cp c:\tutorials test.RuntimeExecTest2

I changed my program as below
package test;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.InputStream;
import java.io.InputStreamReader;

public class RuntimeExecTest2 {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		try {
			Runtime runTime = Runtime.getRuntime();
			Process process = runTime.exec("java -classpath C:\\tutorials test.TestOutput");
			InputStream inputStream = process.getInputStream();
			InputStreamReader isr = new InputStreamReader(inputStream);
			InputStream errorStream = process.getErrorStream();
			InputStreamReader esr = new InputStreamReader(errorStream);

			int n1;
			char[] c1 = new char[1024];
			StringBuffer standardOutput = new StringBuffer();
			while ((n1 = isr.read(c1)) > 0) {
				standardOutput.append(c1, 0, n1);
			}
			System.out.println("Standard Output: " + standardOutput.toString());

			int n2;
			char[] c2 = new char[1024];
			StringBuffer standardError = new StringBuffer();
			while ((n2 = esr.read(c2)) > 0) {
				standardError.append(c2, 0, n2);
			}
			System.out.println("Standard Error: " + standardError.toString());
		} catch (IOException e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		}
	}
}

Must be an Eclipse thing.  I use NetBeans for Java, and it works fine.

Why don't you just open a command prompt and run it from there manually?  That way Eclipse can't get in your way.

I see output when i an at home laptop as below

Standard Output:
Standard Error: Error: Could not find or load main class test.TestOutput




It calls the exec method with "java -classpath C:\\projects\\workspace\\testing\\bin test.TestOutput". We need to set the classpathW so that 'java' can find the directory where our TestOutput class is located. Once again, this example requires 'java' to be on the system path.


The exec call executes the TestOutput class, and the standard output from TestOutput is read (which here is an input stream since we are reading it... the output from TestOutput is the input to RuntimeExecTest2). Additionally, the standard error from TestOutput is read by RuntimeExecTest2.
what above sentences means. How to set it from eclipse. What and where i should put in TestOutput, is it is a text file


how to fix it. please advise

The error you are getting means that, based on the classpath and package information that you've provided, java cannot find the TestOutput.class file at runtime.

java -classpath C:\\projects\\workspace\\testing\\bin test.TestOutput

Means:

Look in the classpath (C:\\projects\\workspace\\testing\\bin) for a folder called "test" (the package name).

And execute TestOutput.class.

To make this work:

1) Your TestOutput.java source file must contain a "package test;" statement.  

2) Compile TestOutput.java, and you will get TestOutput.class.

3) Put TestOutput.class into a folder called "test", to reflect the package structure.

If your classpath is C:\projects\workspace\testing\bin\, then this folder needs to be:

C:\projects\workspace\testing\bin\test

So the full path to your class file will be:

C:\projects\workspace\testing\bin\test\TestOutput.class

Then you are ready to execute this:

java -classpath C:\\projects\\workspace\\testing\\bin test.TestOutput
