To sum it up, I basically need help parsing the data when the fields will be unknown.

I can't create predefined strings / arrays.
Hi. Thanks for the reply.

I only learned about JSON a few days ago and am trying to grasp the syntax / parsing process.

As mentioned earlier, I need to retrieve the routes for a specific boxID. A list of boxID's will be retrieved from a serve In the format below.

So far, the Info I am finding Involves creating classes with predefined strings/arrays etc and loading these values from JSON to the JAVA class.

I cannot do this as I will be downloading Info on the fly.

What would be the best procedure to Just retrieve the required values as Strings/Arrays ?


I'm trying to pass the following code from JSON to JAVA:

I would like for each boxid .. to be parsed Into the relevant credentials/routes.

Should I be converting this specific JSON format to a two dimensional Array for each boxid ?
Thanks for the reply.
I know how to access the JAR but my main question Is, am I downloading the correct JAR files ( as some forums suggest only the one obtained via github/maven Is the correct one and I
would need to use maven to obtain that file.

I have downloaded the file(s) from the following link: › Jar File Download › gson

I need to use the external GSON library and was wondering how I can download this.

I'm a bit confused. I see some direct links to JAR files and then some other forums saying I must install MAVEN and extract the ZIP from there.

I'm using only notepad++ for development at present, no IDE.

Thanks In advance.

Thanks for both answers. Will check the rasdial without cmd and definitely read that artical again (a lot more thoroughly this time).

Hi. I'm trying to read the output of a Runtime.getRuntime().exec cmd process ( a rasdial connection ).

I'm using the below code and the connection establishes fine but I can't see any output redirecting to java. I can see the output from the cmd box.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

In reply to Stephan van Hulst ,

If I use only cmd /K there Is no output appearing. It works but I need to show the output from the cmd.

Hi. I'm using the below runtime command :

This works fine. I can pipe the powershell file from cmd.

When I run this however :

It Just runs the type command and prints the output In the window. It's not getting piped to powershell.

I need to use the second method because I want the user to see the output.

Not sure what's going wrong here and would appreciate any Info.

Do you mean Powershell needs access to the script ?

The code Is being typed In CMD and piped Into powershell so It doesn't need direct access If that's what you mean.

Sorry , I may have not understood correctly.

I can run the command If I place the script file In the same folder as the JAR file.

I would like to place the script file within the JAR and run the same command.

Hi. I have a JAR app that requires piping a powershell file from the command line using the Runtime.getRuntime().exec

I know how to access a resource from within a JAR but In this case , I'm not sure how I can run the below command.

Do I need to get the resource as a file and somehow use the filename In the cmd String ?

Oh ok. I didn't know that. Thanks for the Info.
