Hello,
I want to write a Window .bat file (batch file) that executes a java program. I've written one batch file(see below), but it does not execute java program. What's wrong?
reporting.bat
---------------------------------------------------
copy C:\Report_Input.TXT C:\back_up_reports
java TransformFile1
copy Output_file.TXT C:\back_up_reports

------------------

I'm not a Dos expert but in case it helps, this is a .bat file I use:
path=c:\jdk1.3\bin
cd..
cd JAVAJUNK
java IPaddress

Do you have the paths set up right?
Type the command in the batch file into DOS by hand from the directory it's held in, and see if that works (in your case, 'java TransformFile1').
If it does, there's no reason it wouldn't work in the batch file. Are you sure it isn't working? If DOS couldn't find java.exe (the prog you are trying to run), it would come up with an error, and if java had a problem running your program, that would complain as well.
Perhaps the program just doesn't work right?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
