Caused by: java.io.IOException: java.io.IOException: error=2, No such file or directory

Solutions:

Put the command in .sh file and call that file with actual path.
e.g 

<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
    pageEncoding="ISO-8859-1"%>
<%@ page import="java.io.BufferedReader,java.io.IOException,java.*,java.lang.Runtime,java.io.InputStreamReader;" %>

StringBuffer objOutPut = new StringBuffer();
Process objProcess;
try {
String[] command = {"/home/catlog.sh"};
//String[] command = {"ls -tlr"};

     objProcess = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(command);
   
BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(
objProcess.getInputStream()));

String line = "";
while ((line = reader.readLine()) != null) {
System.out.println((line + "\n"));
objOutPut.append(line + "\n");
}
} catch (Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
