    Operating System command

    Arpad Sooky Newbie

      I would like to start an operating system command from an EJB with

      Runtime.getRuntime().exec(cmdName);

      It does not seem to work, i.e. returns immediately without performing the operation. Is this maybe against the spec? If not, how can this requirement be fulfilled?

      Thanks

      Arpad

          The spec says not to this, but unless you configure
          a SecurityManager you will be allowed.

          It might not be working for lots of reasons,
          I can only guess without more info.
          The most likely reason is you have a relative path
          which is incorrect for the current directory of jboss
          ${jboss.dist}/bin
