Hi All,

I want to pass array of argument from Java to a shell script.I can use process builder api and its exec() method to call the script,but the question is how to receive the parameter in the script.

Thanks in advance

We are not "on call" here. You agreed not to bump posts when you registered, and your post is only an hour old. If you don't get answers immediately, wait!

If you pass the parameter into the script commandline, it will be received in the special variables $1, $2, $3, etc. The special variable $# tells you how many you have.

A Unix shell repeatedly prints a prompt, waits for a command line on stdin, and then carries out some action, as directed by the contents of the command line.
True or False?
