Shell Script from java service output problem

Hi,
I’m calling the following shell script locally from a java service in webMethods.


#!/bin/ksh
abc.sh 1 echo ?


This script will call another script abc.sh which returns a flag of value 0/1/2/3 and I am echoing the return value.

When I run this from unix prompt I get a return value 2(which looks ok) but when i run the java service I get the output as 1. Can anyone tell me what is going wrong ?

My java code looks like this:

#########################################

IDataCursor idcPipeline = pipeline.getCursor();
String line = null;
Vector ssOut = new Vector();
String fullCommand ;
String successFlag = “false”;
String scriptOutput = null ;

try {
Process child = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(fullCommand);
int exitValue = child.waitFor();
if(exitValue==0){
InputStream iStm = child.getInputStream();
InputStreamReader isReader = new InputStreamReader(iStm);
BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(isReader);
while ( (line = br.readLine()) != null)
ssOut.add(line);
int size = ssOut.size();
scriptOutput = ssOut.elementAt(size-2).toString();
successFlag=“true”;
}else{
exitvalue = exitValue;
successFlag=“false”;
}
}
catch (Throwable e) {
successFlag=“false”;
}
finally{

idcPipeline.insertAfter(“successFlag”, successFlag); idcPipeline.insertAfter(“outFlag”, outs);
idcPipeline.insertAfter(“scriptOutput”, ssOut);
//Destroy the cursor
idcPipeline.destroy();
}

Will appreciate if anyone can suggest something to solve my problem.

Thanks

HI,
May be you should use child.getOutputStream instead of getInputStream. you are trying to get the output from the shell script right?

Thanks,
Hari.
