Hmm, maybe (just a guess) your NetRexx scripts are not invoked via BSF?

This is what you would need to do to invoke a standalone NetRexx program from a Windows command
line for IBM's BSF:

    java com.ibm.bsf.Main -mode exec -lang netrexx -in %1

Just adapt the package name to Apache's.

If it's the first time you use BSF then you might skim over this article:

Also, the enhanced version of my bsf4rexx (to be ported to Apache BSF) for alpha testing (including
sources and samples)
can be downloaded from:


Eventually this version will be moved to sourceforge for those people who have the IBM version

Hope that helps,
