How to execute a python file with few arguments in java?

+5 votes

String command:

python <ServerName> userName pswd<b>

Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(command);
BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(p.getInputStream()));
String line = "";
while ((line = reader.readLine()) != null) {
    System.out.println(line + "\n");

Code is not terminating nor giving the results

You can use Java Runtime.exec() to run python script, As an example first create a python script file using shebang and then set it executable.

import sys
print ('Number of Arguments:', len(sys.argv), 'arguments.')
print ('Argument List:', str(sys.argv))
print('This is Python Code')
print('Executing Python')
print('From Java')

if you save the above file as script_python and then set the execution permissions using

chmod 777 script_python

Then you can call this script from Java Runtime.exec() like below

import java.nio.charset.StandardCharsets;

public class ScriptPython {
       Process mProcess;

public void runScript(){
       Process process;
             process = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(new String[]{"script_python","arg1","arg2"});
             mProcess = process;
       }catch(Exception e) {
          System.out.println("Exception Raised" + e.toString());
       InputStream stdout = mProcess.getInputStream();
       BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(stdout,StandardCharsets.UTF_8));
       String line;
          while((line = reader.readLine()) != null){
               System.out.println("stdout: "+ line);
       }catch(IOException e){
             System.out.println("Exception in reading output"+ e.toString());

class Solution {
      public static void main(String[] args){
          ScriptPython scriptPython = new ScriptPython();

There are three ways to get this done:

  • runtime approach
  • process approach
  • jython approach

Have a look at this blog for detailed explanation with example.
