Maximum length of Command Line Argument
I am trying to call a java class along with a command line argument from a shell script . The line of code in the shell script will be like as follows:
arg_01=`echo $file_list | sed 's/\s/,/g'`
java -classpath $webapp_classpath com.example.it.util.InvokeBatch $arg_01
#End of shell Script
From java documentation I understand that the maximum command line argument length can be up to a maximum of Integer.MAX_VALUE (approximately 2147483647).
But does this hold good when i am calling this java class from within a shell script too ? I believe that there is a maximum length applicable to command line arguments in UNIX. In any way does this value restricts the Integer.MAX_VALUE that JAVA allows?
Thanks in Advance for your help.
