ProcessBuilder redirectErrorStream() Method

Advertisements


Description

The java.lang.ProcessBuilder.redirectErrorStream(boolean redirectErrorStream) method sets this process builder's redirectErrorStream property. If this property is true, then any error output generated by subprocesses subsequently started by this object's start() method will be merged with the standard output, so that both can be read using the Process.getInputStream() method. This makes it easier to correlate error messages with the corresponding output. The initial value is false.
