Hi All,

Am new to Java programming. I was trying to execute a program which takes some parameters as input and another control file as the source to read the data from.I provided the input parameters on Arguments tab of Run configurations dialog box. But am not able to understand where to provide the source file where the program needs to read the data from. I tried under VM arguments but it's throwing an error.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

You don't say what error. Do you realize there's no "current working
directory" à la POSIX in Java? When you open a file, you open it from
the root of the application calling open, i.e.: when running/debugging
via Eclipse, the root of the project.

Is this helpful?
