Executing external processes from Java is a well-known problem area. It is
inheriently platform dependent and requires the developer to know and test
for platform specific behaviors, for example using cmd.exe on Windows or
limited buffer sizes causing deadlocks. The JRE support for this is very
limited, albeit better with the new Java SE 1.5 ProcessBuilder class.
Reliably executing external processes can also require knowledge of the
environment variables before or after the command is executed. In J2SE
1.1-1.4 there is not support for this, since the method, System.getenv(),
for retriving environment variables is deprecated.
There are currently several different libraries that for their own purposes
have implemented frameworks around Runtime.exec() to handle the various
issues outlined above. The proposed project should aim at coordinating and
learning from these initatives to create and maintain a simple, reusable and
well-tested package. Since some of the more problematic platforms are not
readily available, it is my hope that the broad Apache community can be a
great help.
