The following page has been changed by SiegfriedGoeschl:
http://wiki.apache.org/commons/Exec

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Describe Exec here.
+ = Introduction =
  
+ == Rationale ==
+ 
+ Commons Exec is library to execute external processes from within a Java application. Doing
+ so without using a library is a error prone task therefore many developers used the following
+ approaches
+ 
+   * using ANT internally which is overkill
+   * ripping ANT apart to get the desired functionality
+   * writing their home-grown library
+   * using plexux-utils
+ 
+ == Initial source ==
+ 
+ The project is based on the ANT source code being the most mature implementation 
+ 
+ == History ==
+ 
+ The project was accepted to join the sandbox in 2005 but was more or less dormant. 
+
