I have a script in which I use system ("command")
to launch a Java application that is in the same folder of the script. Something like:
$command = "java -mx300m -classpath application_name.jar -model path"
When used on my machine this works fine.
Now I'm trying to run the same code from a cgi folder on a server. When I run the same script as a cgi script on the server everything works fine except for the system ("$command")
part. It seems like I cannot run that Java application from the server. Or perhaps servers do not accept the "system" function at all? Or perhaps I cannot have a .jar file in the cgi folder?
Does anybody know something that can help me diagnose the problem?
I apologise in advance if any of this does not make sense. I have never received formal training in programming or computer science and I'm just learning by doing.
Thanks a lot.
