Invoking a browser from an Application with a URL I specify

Hi
I am trying to invoke a browser by clicking a button on my Application .I want the browser to come up with the URL I decide before i click on the button.
To invoke the browser i am using the Runtime class. and then using the Runtime.exec() method .
But thats only half the solution.(Loading a specific URL decided at runtime is a problem)
Is there a way out ??
Thanks
Pranav
