    Default How to create my own linux shell in java?

    Hi !!! I have been assigned a task to create my own shell like bash for linux. I have to implement few basic requirement in that shell like ..

    1) it should display the host name and username who is logged in:
    e.g. user@mypc:$ like in bash
    2) mostly used commands like cp, pwd, cd, ls
    3) running applications (optional)

    I searched a little bit but i cudnt find any reliable resource related to java though there were many regarding doing it in C. I just need a path because i have never done shell scripting or shell programming. Plz share if you know any good tutorial or resource.

    Thanks in advance.

    Read the API specs for the System.getProperty and the Runtime.exec methods.
