The official format in the Javadoc is "[hostname]:file_path", although I'm not specifying any hostname - I presume this means "leave things as they are", though I may be wrong - I couldn't find any explicit explanation of what happens if you don't specify a host name.

Nonetheless, I gave this a try, and it doesn't work - using job.setNativeSpecification("-wd ~/SGE-test -o SGE-test.log -e SGE-test.err.log"); and removing the DRMAA lines fails with the familiar message:
>> 12/08/2010 11:54:28|worker|host123|W|job 92.1 failed on host host123.epistemy.com general changing into working directory because: 12/08/2010 11:54:27 [1024:14268]: error: can't chdir to /SGE-test: No such file or directory

Did you also observer, that "job.setWorkingDirectory" will create the target directory, when it's not present?

Is this a feature or a bug? The plain `qsub -wd <directory>` will send the job into error state instead, which is what I expect. Though the DRMAA specification could be different.
