    Question Reading input from a CMD operation?

    Hello Community,

    I'm currently trying to get a java program to store lines of text from a CMD operation ( ping test ) in a String variable so I can preform checks on it. I unforunatly have no clue how to read said operation in a java program ( I'm fairly new to java ). Any ideas?

    It is possible to catch the CMD's output within a Java program. Read document about Runtime.exec() and the Process class.
