Hello, I am developing a Java application in Eclipse on Mac Pro, similar to Linux environment.

In my code I need to do something like:

Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime();
String cmd = "ttg " + inFileName + " -o" + outFileName;

"ttg" is installed under /usr/bin and can be executed in a terminal, but can't be executed here in Eclipse. I have to specify the full path:

String cmd = "/usr/bin/ttg " + inFileName + " -o" + outFileName;

Under Windows, we can set this through Environment Variables. why the application in Eclipse can't call "ttg" without specifying the full path?

Any way out? Thanks.

Eclipse is probably not launched with the full path available to you at the shell. You'll have to investigate your mac environment to understand if mac does this or not.
