    When the plugin enables, I want it to load a world (which will be the main world) from a zip/tar file (un zip/tar it and load it) and on disable, I want it to delete the world. Kind of like a restarted world every time you start the server. Thanks.

    And also, when the plugin disables, aka server stops, I want it to launch a batch file. How would I do so?

    Anyone have anything? Especially for my second question?

  2. ou can register an thread at Runtime to run when the process "java" is shutting down
    you can use an processbuilder to launch other processes, like cmd
    You can use some methodes at server class to load worlds

    Is it just me, or is evryone getting 502 errors?

    Well I know all of those things.... But can you like give me an example or something? And yes, We all are getting those errors.
  4. Code:java
    1. Runtime.addShutdownHook(new Thread(new Runnable(){public void run(){
    2. // runned on program exit, not bukkit thread safe
    3. }}));

    So how could I load a world from a backup, (tar or zip), in some python or batch script?
  9. You can make your own java program, thats doing those file move/copy when its started from your script. I dont have mutch expirimense whit files and sutch, but I can make an example code mayby, but not now

    An example or maybe even help is what Im looking for. Thanks :)
  11. try making your own stuff whit the things I given, that way you would learn more, I dont have anny examples from this

    I found an example at the internet whit google, mayby you can search the next time?
    2. public static void copyFile(File source, File dest) throws IOException {
    3. if(!dest.exists()) {
    4. dest.createNewFile();
    5. }
    6. InputStream in = null;
    7. OutputStream out = null;
    8. try {
    9. in = new new FileInputStream(source);
    10. out = new FileOutputStream(dest);
    12. // Transfer bytes from in to out
    13. byte[] buf = new byte[1024];
    14. int len;
    15. while ((len = in.read(buf)) > 0) {
    16. out.write(buf, 0, len);
    17. }
    18. }
    19. finally {
    20. if(in != null) {
    21. in.close();
    22. }
    23. if(out != null) {
    24. out.close();
    25. }
    26. }
    27. }

    I think you can only do ZIP archives without any external libraries. The following code is untested. It might mess up while copying directories, but I'll mess around with it and see what I can come up with.
    File file = new File("yourzip.zip");
    ZipFile zip = new ZipFile(file);
    File destination = new File("destination");
    InputStream is;
    OutputStream out;
        for(ZipEntry z:zip.entries)
            byte buffer = new byte[1024];
            int len;
            is = zip.getEntry(z.getName());
            out = new OutputStream(destination);
            while((len = is.read(buf)) > 0)out.write(buf, 0, len);
    catch(IOException ioe)
    I use code tags because of formatting issues... XenForo, fix syntax tags!
  14. its better to use finly tags around the zip file reading and that kin o stuff, just to be sure
