Windows – Redirecting passed arguments to a windows batch file


I would like to call a jar file from a windows batch file. One requirement is to be able to pass all the batch file arguments as-is to the jar file invocation. For example,

Required Command line:

foo.bat --flag1=x --flag2=y --flag3=z

The batch file foo.bat should invoke foo.jar like follows:

java -jar foo.jar --flag1=x --flag2=y --flag3=z

How do I make the batch file do this?
I can do some batch variable magic with % to do this, but is there a simpler way to do this?

Best Solution


java -jar foo.jar %*

meet your needs? It should add all parameters from the batch execution to your application call within the batch file.
