running java app from command line

3 posts in this topic

Hey all,

i'm trying to use a simple java application in a script, but neither Run nor ShellExecute can help me on this one. I'd like to know if someone knows how to do it in a clean way.

An example (that obviously doesn't work), just to show what's the idea...

CODE
ShellExecute("java MainCommandLine", "-comments", "C:\Directory_of_the_app")

cheers.

Perhaps you have the first parameter mixed in with the executable name. All the parameters being passed belong together in the second parameter string of ShellExecute:
ShellExecute('java', '-jar "C:\Directory_of_the_app\AppName.jar -comments', 'C:\Directory_of_the_app')

:)

Edit: Edited for clarity
