How to excute commands in DOS ?

I want to execute DOS commands like "shutdown -i" in my Java application but I'm not able to get it done.
I've used the method as follows but it does not work(does not throw any exceptions as well):

try
{
Process child=Runtime.getRuntime().exec("shutdown -i");
}

catch(Exception e)
{
e.printStackTrace();
}

Also plz. shed some light on how to execute commands with multiple parameters like:
attrib -s -h -r "*.*" /s /d
