The following URLs should help you in understanding how to do this:

The 'search' link is found below and to the right of the 'Post New Topic' button in each and every forum - it's a handy thing to try, and is how I came up with these links.
Personally I would avoid using java programs to call other (non-java) programs. Call me strange but it seems to me like a bit of a kludge. There should be a more elegant way to do whatever you are trying to do. What exactly do you need to call from your java program?
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
