    Sorry for my lack of comprehension, but do you mean that you want to run a java program using linux commands, or run linux commands from a java program? If you wish to execute bash commands from a java program afaik the below should work:

    Runtime.getRuntime().exec("Command");
    Where command is the name of the command you wish to run.
