Hi - Is it possible to open a URL in a specific frame from a java application (not an applet) I did it successfully from an applet using the following code:

I am trying to do something very similar now - My .jar file is in the left frame of my page, and I would like it to be able to control the actions of the right frame.
Is this possible? - any searches Ive done seem to indicate it is only possible to open a new browser window.

I don't understand this - how can it run in a frame if it's not an applet? Is it a Web-Start application? Those can't control the contents of the browser.
