Did anyone has idea how to invoke an another application within Java (Java command shell)? My goal, is to click a button, and a IE window will be invoked. I thinks i can run the 'iexplore' within a Java by the command shell.
Also google for "Java exec rundll32". There are more online examples than molecules in the universe. Well, almost. Feeding a filespec or URL to rundll32 is a lot like clicking a file in Windows Explorer. Windows will open the program associated with the extension or domain (http). This should open the user's default browser which may not be IE which may or may not match your user's expectations.
