Re: How to resolve the problem with Runtime.getRuntime().exec returningEBCDIC data when running on iseries



fixed

No error. It just not spliting my string when I use that.

Hmmm, that's odd. I use it all the time. In fact I put it in my String
utility class as a static method.

Is it giving you errors, or just simply not putting it in there?

Just as an FYI, your newline character on Windows is \n\r. You
best to
grab
the System.getProperty("line.separator") property for your split.

Other than that I'm not sure I could really think of a better way.
This is
where it get's tricky with the "run everywhere" type of thing.
Obviously the
best way on the IBM i to run a command would be with the
CommandCall
class,
but that won't work on Windows.

That being said, if you are already hard-coding something, you
might
want to
just use the CommandCall instead of the
Runtime.getRuntime().exec()
method.
Just a thought, not sure on the full scenario so this might not be
an
option
at all.

basically reading the data as ByteArray and does the EBCDIC
coversion if
the os.name = OS/400.

private static List<String> readStdio(InputStream is)
throws
Exception {

BufferedInputStream bis = new
BufferedInputStream(is);
ByteArrayOutputStream bao = new
ByteArrayOutputStream();
List<String> rs = null;

int result = bis.read();
while(result != -1) {
byte b = (byte)result;
bao.write(b);
result = bis.read();
}

String str;
if (System.getProperty("os.name").equals("OS/400"))
str = bao.toString("Cp037");
else
str = bao.toString();

rs = new
ArrayList<String>(Arrays.asList(str.split("\n")));

return rs;
}

I've created a class that will use the
Runtime.getRuntime().exec
to
execute
a command on iseries when instantiated. Once the command is
sucessfully
executed, it then reads the Process.getInputStream() to get
the
result.

I've found that reading of the Process.getInputStream() works
fine
if
the
class is instatiated from a PC. However, it failed to read
Process.getInputStream() data correctly when the class is
instatiated
from
iseries. I then added some codes the print the read result in
hex
and,

appearantly, when the class is instantiate from iseries, the
result is
sent
back in EBCDIC encoding format and the BufferedReader is
attempting to
read
it as ASCII. Well, that ain't going to work :(.

Has anyone encountered this problem before? How can I resolve
this
so
that
this class can be run on both iseries and PC?
