Thread: Use an MS Access database as command line arguments

    Default Use an MS Access database as command line arguments

    Hi guys

    I am an absolute newbie with Java, spent a few days reading / watching online literature regarding Java and also searched but can't find an answer to my question.

    I have a pre-written and compiled Java application (.Jar extension) which runs perfectly from a command line. The application takes 3 arguments to run. Is it possible to get these arguments from an MS Access database and re-iterate so the command line runs with each record in the Access database (access db contains 3 fields, each field will be 1 argument passed to the Java app).

    Apologies if this is in the wrong section, it was the closest I could find.

    Thank you.

    Welcome to the Forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code correctly and other useful tips for newcomers.

    You may be able to accomplish what you've described using an OS batch file or command line script rather than messing with the contents of the .jar file. It's hard to know what could be done with Java without knowing what's in the .jar file and whether it can be modified.
