Oh yes, i forgot to mention that in my code i did use the absolute paths to my
java .jar file as you can see i my code below, the absolute path to the
Extensions directory is in the variable homedir. I also set my classpath to
point to the folder just in case..
Any ideas why it won't work? and any suggestions for workarounds?
homedir = os.getcwd()
homedir = homedir + "/Extensions"
command = "cd "+homedir
command = "java -jar "+ '"' + homedir + "/" + "ActiveLearningTools.jar" + '" ' +
"prepArticles >> test.txt"
