The code listing below is in the constructor for a class

which extends a JFrame.


I would like to use the JConsole as a shell window so

users can execute scripts for my application.


The frame shows the first time but it is very small. I have

to resize it to see the console.  I did

setSize(340,280) but this doesn’t seem to matter.


There is no menu like shown on the website and no

commands like cd work. Although, the commands I have

developed in my application work.


Thanks in advance for any help.

    ConsoleInterface console = new JConsole();



    Interpreter interp = new Interpreter(console);


    interp.setVariable("taApp", taApp );

    interp.setVariable("taFrame", taFrame );


    new Thread(interp).start();
