I have project running under JBoss platform on (Hibernate/Oracle with servlet coding). But unfortunately I need to invoke client resources using �Runtime.exec()� from the browser (internet explorer). In the client side I need to store one text data file and invoke a program (daf.exe) using Runtime. How could I do that. Should I have to disable some security feature of the browser? Or what are the best possible way I can do. Can you please help me.
Is there any specific reason/requirement why daf.exe has to be called from a java runtime? In my opinion if all you need is to run this exe, you could do that from a client side vbscript. However, I have to warn you that this is not a recommended approach. Hope this site is only on your company's local intranet. If not, can you please give the public url... I will make sure never to go there.

Yeah, this is using only on intranet people. How could you use VBScript to invoke exe file. I mean when backend servlet is running on Jboss. Could you please provide me little bit more info on that.
