    Default Program.jar -command

    hello, i am a new member towards this forum, i was told by my friend to join this due to the great community and solutions. I am currently working on a console program and i was wondering if this is possible in Java.

    like in bash you can do "program.sh -command answer"

    is it possible in Java and so what is this called?

    Default Re: Program.jar -command

    Do you mean pass command-line arguments to a jar file?

    Simply tack on the arguments you want at the end. The general syntax:

    java [options] -jar jarfile [args]
