Running java with AutoIt

4 posts in this topic

I'm in a class where we have a big computer program to do by the end of the semester. We're going to code the program in java, but I would like to code the interface in AutoIt. I once had a similar situation and I used the code RunWait("java Kaleidoscope """& $path & """ " & $xInitial & " " & $yInitial & " " & $radius & " " & $degree & " " & $initialRotation & " " & $finalRotation & " " & 500 & " """ & $sdir & """", @TempDir, @SW_HIDE), where Kaleidoscope.java was the name of the program and xInitial, yInitial etc were the input parameters. The problem is, I know I can do input to a java program this way, but I have no idea how to do output. I've been trying for the last hour with a simple java Hello World program that prints out "Hello World" to System.out, but I can't seem to make any AutoIt program read it.

Did you try Run() with $STDOUT_CHILD, and StdOutRead()?

Yes, I did, but I couldn't quite get it to work.

Can you post a simplistic Java one-liner to write "Hello, world." to the console, and a simple AutoIt script to run it (with StdOutRead, for ex.)? That would give us something to test with.
