By "commandline calls", do you mean server terminal commands, like:

> echo hello
hello
> ls
.
..
hello.txt
> pwd
/var/lib/nuxeo/server/nxserver

…?

yes, I need to execute server terminal commands. Do the "Scripting" options allow that by default?

As written in the page about Automation Scripting:

> Automation Scripting is a Nuxeo module which provides ability to create and contribute Automation chain/operation in JavaScript.

So I'm afraid it is not what you are looking for.

There is also the Context.RunScript operation, but it is to manipulate the context variables with a script, not to run shell commands.

A solution would be to create your own Nuxeo operation where you run your shell commands with something like this:

Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("shell command")

You can also set the shell command as a operation parameter.
