Subject Re: [exec] Getting Error opening terminal error while trying to execute command on linux
Date Sun, 05 Sep 2010 20:09:14 GMT
I was able to execute the command. I got the environment variable map from
the EnvironmentUtils and then added a new entry for TERM and then passed
this Map along with execute() method of the DefaultExecutor.
