How to get mysql installation path ?
Posted by: Anil Anil

I have 2 mysql servers running on my system,
To execute mysqldump, we need to specify the path of the bin folder

D:\mysql5.0.67\bin\mysqldump --user=xxx --password=xxx dbname

I am executing the above command from JSP using exec method from Runtime class.

My doubt is How to avoid hardcoding of mysql installation path (Is there any way to get path up to bin using port no ) Or any other way

Is there any way to get D:\mysql5.0.67\bin\ from Java so as to avoid hardcoding ?
Could anyone please give an idea of this ?
