I would like to give input to this unix process from my java code..but I am not sure how to do that. The code I have so far is as follows:

Search for the Javaworld article "When Runtime.exec() won't". It's a must-read when working with Processes.

Are you sure? Perhaps the process is being paused because its output / error buffer is full, something that is very clearly discussed in the article. Once you clear the output and error buffers it may continue again.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
