    Someone at the Sun Forums has already given him some code.

    New To Java - Running batch files using java

    Thank masijade for letting me know about the cross post.

    Well, to tell you the truth, I don't really see anything wrong with posting on multiple sites (but I do for posting in multiple forums on the same site), as long as the OP keeps all threads "up-to-date". Which this one, did not.

    Not so sure I agree...
    • If everything & everybody were perfect/responsible, yeah I would probably agree, but....
    • Since history has taught that we are just beings (notice the missing "human" part), and are VERY imperfect, I don't agree, therefore...
    • My vision would be to stick to one forum until a solution is obtained. If a satisfactory answer/solution is not obtained, then go to another forum.

    Thanks anyway...

    Which, of course, is why I said as long as they keep all others "up-to-date" (which many, many, many people won't).

    Now, for something simple, like this, I wouldn't do it either. But for something much more complicated, it makes sense, as, although many users are members of many forums, each forum will have a few good posters that are not members of other forum, and on something complicated I would want the widest possible audience (of course, that would mean I start on Sun's forums and stay there alone, for a while, and then, if I am not satisfied post on multiple other platforms, but with all info gleaned to that point and periodic updates on all of them).

    P.S. Members, don't get me wrong, I am not saying this forum is not good, but I would trust the vendors own forum site for a product to have more knowledgeable members than most others. No insult intended. ;-)

    Edit: And hopefully none taken. ;-)

    ... and yes I guess that I would go first to Sun's forum (it does has more traffic), but the issue is the cross posting. Posters probably don't realize the effects of cross posting... they're only thinking about their java problem.
    On a positive side, the volunteer responses here on the Java forums is much nicer than the Sun forums (they tend to be more demanding and less forgiving).
    I suggested to the mods a sticky post with recommendations about the forum use and among those recommendations was to avoid cross posting. For some reason, which I never understood, the suggestion didn't stick (the admins didn't like it... go figure).
