Problem in executing powershell using JAVA RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have simple powershell script as below :

    # Filename: Hello.ps1

    Write-Host 'Hello World!'
    Write-Host "Good-bye World! `n"

    # end of script


    I wish to run this script via JAVA by the below JAVA code -


    import java.io.*;


    public class PsJava {


          public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException{


            Runtime runtime = Runtime.getRuntime();

            String cmds = (String) "cmd /C powershell C:/Documents and Settings/vvenkata/My         Documents/Hello.ps1";



            Process proc = runtime.exec(cmds);




            InputStream inputstream = proc.getInputStream();

                InputStreamReader inputstreamreader = new InputStreamReader(inputstream);

                BufferedReader bufferedreader = new BufferedReader(inputstreamreader);

            String line;

            while ((line = bufferedreader.readLine()) != null) {







    Why is that I am not able to see any print statements in Eclipse from Hello.ps1? Can anyone help me out in this..

  • Hi,


    As the issue is due to JAVA coding in executing Windows PowerShell, I kindly recommend you to contact JAVA for support and post in Windows PowerShell Discussion Group for a better assistance. Meanwhile, you could search in Windows PowerShell Blog for information.


    Best Regards
