    changing user.dir at runtime

    Hello,

    I have the following problem:
    I'm starting my java application as a daemon (onlinux). In my setup this means my user.dir is set to /root. However, I need to run an external program (with the Runtime->Process).
    To be able to run this process, I need to have a user.dir that points to the same dir as where my external prgram resides.
    Is there a way to change your user.dir at runtime?

    Have u tried e.g. the Runtime method exec(String command, String[] envp, File dir) where dir becomes the working directory used to execute the process?

    yeah, that should work. But I already fixed it in a different way (changed the program I was calling to not need a user.dir in the first place)
