Calling an external application

Calling an external application

Calling an external application

Can JSP call an external application ie. an *.exe file or *.dll file and display it on the page itself?
Where can I find information regarding this topic?



RE: Calling an external application

Hi Sammi,

 You can use JSP to execute external commands.You can use Java Native Interface to execute native code code stored inside libraries or DLLs but all this i think can be done on the server since JSP pages are executed on the server.
You can execute external commands on the server using the Runtime class.
Runtime r=Runtime.getRuntime();
Process p=r.exec(external command);


RE: Calling an external application

Hi sammi,

  You can find information about this in the java docs.
