    Are you looking to run linux commands from the Java application? If so one way I used that works well is:

    String[] commandShutdown = {
      "gnome-terminal",
      "-e", 
      "sudo /sbin/shutdown -h now"
    };
     
    try {
      Runtime.getRuntime().exec(commandShutdown);
    } catch {IOExecption e) {
     e.printStackTrace();
    }

    what ever commands you're trying to use you would use the Runtime.
