Hi Guys : This is really weird.

If I run "which nmrPipe" in ProcessBuilder (or even in Runtime.exec) I
get "no nmrPipe in /bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin".

but if I echo $PATH from a login terminal (I'm in Mac OS X)
"/usr/local/NMRPipe/nmrpipe.mac/nmrbin.mac:/usr/local/NMRPipe/nmrpipe.mac:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin"

How can I use the same path as logged in user would get using java's runtime or ProcessBuilder (1.5) API ?

a) Tell your application which PATH to use


b) read the same configuration files.

Okay thanks... but where does java get it's path from initially (I'm particularly using Mac OS X, but Id like to know in general how this is resolved), that is, if you don't specify the -D argument ?

Are you okay? You look a little big. Maybe this tiny ad will help:
