I have an elixir umbrella project where one of the apps sends requests to a Java app that I have exposed as something similar to an OTP process using JInterface.
It works perfectly because the JInterface library that ships with Erlang makes it easy.
My problem is that I need to be able to stop and start my JInterface process in my umbrella app and I can’t find any documentation that shows how to do it. I currently have to execute the jar manually.
Please can somebody explain / point me towards documentation showing how I can execute my jar from within elixir under supervision?
I have tried for so long to find out how to do this but I can only find docs on how to use JInterface and how to interface with it but not how to start it programatically under supervision.
Thanks in advance.
true = link(process()), true = erlang:monitor_node(State#state.java_node, true),
Another thing that you might find useful (from the Java side) is to use jinerface_stdlib
