Are you sure about that ".;"? Should it perhaps be "./"?

./foo.jar: ./foo.jar: cannot execute binary file

why do you need exec ? You can just do :
java -jar path-to-jar

i need to tell java about class path in my case the local place that is ->"."
im reading from there configuration files . so i can't run only the jar
even when i do without the sh
java -cp /.;foo.jar com.umen.Main
java -cp .;foo.jar com.umen.Main
im still getting the error :
./foo.jar: ./foo.jar: cannot execute binary file

but when i do :
java -cp foo.jar com.umen.Main (without the ".")
its working , but my java app failed Because it is looking for the configurations files from "."
so why i can't add the "." to -cp ?

do you have the configuration file in the same directory as the jar? If so does the jar have a hard coded path of where the configuration file needs to be stored?

no it does not it uses the java ResourceBundle mechanism
that basically takes the files from the classpath

even if i do :
java -classpath /home/umen;./foo.jar com.umen.Main
it still gives me the error:
/home/umen/foo.jar: /home/umen/foo.jar: cannot execute binary file
