I have been trying to access the modeller program written in python programming language with my Java code. But I am unable to do so. I have tried accessing the .py file , the .exe file, using jython but still no success. The jython is helping access certain classes not the entire program.

Plz help.

I have tried this code but its giving me some stupid errors which i cant fix.

Plz help...


// run this way

// javac

// java -classpath . JavaRunCommand

public class JavaRunCommand {

    public static void main(String args[]) {

    String st = null;

    try {

        String[]callAndArgs= {\"python\",\"\",\"arg1\",\"arg2\"};

        Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(callAndArgs);

        BufferedReader stdInput = new BufferedReader(new


        BufferedReader stdError = new BufferedReader(new


        // read the output

        while ((s = stdInput.readLine()) != null) {



        // read any errors

        while ((s = stdError.readLine()) != null) {





    catch (IOException e) {

        System.out.println(\"exception occured\");

Did you have a look at Jython?

i think you should try this instead,

  Runtime.getRuntime().exec("cmd /c start");

python files alone are not executable. They need an application to tun them, in this case, cmd.

or in your case i think you should do this

 Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(callAndArgs);  p.waitFor();

Python scripts are executable if you put #! /usr/bin/env python on top of the script and by executing command $ chmod +x after that you can execute python file as ./
