Hello,

I want to call powerbuilder code from Java and all my research lead to PBNI features.

Unfortunatly, it's not so simple to build JNA or JNI mapping to call the PBVM.dll.

It's look like an example (java2pb2) existed in the old codeexchange at this URL : http://powerbuilder.codexchange.sybase.com/files/documents/67/304/Java2pb2.zip

Does anyone still have this example ?

Thank's in advance !

Regards,

That would be pretty much the same answer. You would call the EXE from the RUN command:

public void excCommand(String new_dir){
    Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime();
    try {
        rt.exec(new String[]{"cmd.exe","/c","start"});

    } catch (IOException e) {
        // TODO Auto-generated catch block
        e.printStackTrace();
    }
}

Pass in any parameters you need to, as well.
And of course you can  pass in a string variable instead of hardcoding the
"cmd.exe".
 

Good Luck,
Olan

Actually, I want the exact opposite !

I need to call PowerBuilder code from a Java program.
