I am using createProcess in C to open a command prompt to execute a jar . I have figured out all the kinks but for sake of debugging would like to somehow add something where the console just does not flash and is gone immediately.
What I am looking is for the jar to be executed and command window wait for a button press from me before it terminates.
This will only be for debugging and I will remove it before putting it out so as the console window does not hang and kill everything down the line.
if (!CreateProcess(NULL, // No module name (use command line)
"java -jar testfile.jar", // Command line
NULL, // Process handle not inheritable
NULL, // Thread handle not inheritable
FALSE, // Set handle inheritance to FALSE
0, // No creation flags
NULL, // Use parent's environment block
NULL, // Use parent's starting directory
&si, // Pointer to STARTUPINFO structure
&pi) // Pointer to PROCESS_INFORMATION structure
MessageBox(0, "test jar passed", "jar executed", 1);
printf("create process call to jar was sucessful");
MessageBox(0,"jar failed", "Error Test", 1);
To stop the blinking of console, you can use
getch() waits for user to input character. If you don't have
getch(), you can use other functions like
getchar(). But unlike
getch() it takes an extra newline.
I think it solves your problem.
