Restart PADS from Java Program


I am facing problems to restart PADS(Passive asset detection system) from java program.I used the root as a user. So from the command prompt I can start PADS with out sudo ,but when I try to start PADS from the my java program i.e.

Process proc=Runtime.getRuntime().exec("pads restart");

It throws the error in log that FATAL error ! you not root
and permission denied.

Then I tried the same with sudo

Process proc=Runtime.getRuntime().exec("sudo pads restart";

Here it create another two process extra
1 for stop the pads
2) for start the pads

It does not kill the previous process of PADS .and both the process get hung.

Please help me how I can solve this , that will work same in both from terminal and the java program

Breaking it down

Take your problem and break it down into pieces:
  • Call a program from Java
  • Call a program with arguments from Java
  • Call a suexec root program from Java
  • Call a program via sudo from Java
  • Verify your restart command from the command line, then implement that in Java

Doing this can help you determine if it's a PADS issue, or inexperience with the Runtime.getRuntime().exec(...) method--which looks like a mix of the system and exec C calls--, or with your restart command. Divide and conquer, write small test cases, keep it simple.
