    Build Status Build Status npm version

    This module will embed the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) into a Node.js app. It will download the platform specific JRE at installation time. Afterwards the embedding app can be bundled into a platform specific package. This package would not require any further JRE installation steps by users.

    Install

    npm install --save node-jre

    Usage

    In this example we will run the a Java class-file at the relative path java/Hello.class. It's source code java/Hello.java would look like this:

    public class Hello {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
            System.out.println("Hello, " + args[0+ "!");
        }
    }

    You can compile it with something like this:

    javac java/Hello.java

    By running the following file you should get true as output.

    var jre = require('node-jre');
     
    var output = jre.spawnSync(  // call synchronously
        ['java'],                // add the relative directory 'java' to the class-path
        'Hello',                 // call main routine in class 'Hello'
        ['World'],               // pass 'World' as only parameter
        { encoding: 'utf8' }     // encode output as string
      ).stdout.trim();           // take output from stdout as trimmed String
     
    console.log(output === 'Hello, World!'); // Should print 'true'

    API

    jre.install([callback]) Downloads and prepares a Java Runtime Engine (JRE). It is automatically called during module installation.

    • callback (function(error)). Will be called when installation is finished. In case of any problems, error will be defined and contain a description.

    jre.spawn(classpath, classname[, args][, options]) Spawns a new child process by running the main method of a given Java class. This is a wrapper around child_process.spawn. Please look there for further documentation.

    • classpath (array of strings). Paths to .jar files or directories containing .classfiles.
    • classname (string). The Java class to run.
    • args (array of strings). The command line arguments that are to be passed to the Java class's main method. Same as in child_process.spawn.
    • options (object). Options that are passed to child_process.spawn.
    • Returns an object of the type child_process.ChildProcess.

    jre.spawnSync(classpath, classname[, args][, options]) Synchronously spawns a new child process by running the main method of a given Java class. The command will not return until the spawned process ends. This is a wrapper around child_process.spawnSync. Please look there for further documentation.

    • classpath (array of strings). Paths to .jar files or directories containing .classfiles.
    • classname (string). The Java class to run.

    • Returns a result object as in child_process.spawnSync.
