hi there,
is there a way to start a su session thru a java app??

when i use Runtime.getRuntime().exec( "konsole --type su" );
a konsole pops up and asks for the password. But I want it to happen in the background.

any suggestions?

thanks,
ben

What do you mean 'in background'?
With the su-password in the source-code???

Perhaps it's better to create su-permissions for a special program, which is called from your java-app.

man sudoers
