Aspose - Error Converting Document


I am having an issue converting a document to PDF on a unix server through sql. I can’t run any .sh file from within sql. If I run /local/home/example/example/aspose/script/convert.sh sitting on the unix server, the document is converted correctly.

When I run the following through sql I get an exit code 127 error.

CALL dbms_java.set_output(500);
set serveroutput on size 1000000;

ER VARCHAR2(6000);
l_re varchar2(6000);
l_pls varchar2(6000);
dbms_output.put_Line(‘see if we can convert a document’);

        core_host_command.hostCommand(p_command        => '/local/home/example/example/aspose/script/getlist.sh'
                                      p_return_message => l_re,
                                      p_plsql_error    => l_pls);

dbms_output.put_line(substr('l_re '||l_re,1,255));
dbms_output.put_line(substr('l_pls '||l_pls,1,255));

I tried changing the sql to have the command as ‘ksh/local/home/example/example/aspose/scripts/convert.sh’ and ‘/usr/bin/ksh /local/home/example/example/aspose/scripts/convert.sh’ but none seem to work, I don’t know if I am calling the shell script correctly.

When I run the sql script I get the following error: l_re <>127<>

Any help on why this exitCode is appearing or if I am calling the shell script incorrectly would be greatly appreciated.
