Hi java masters,

May I know the java code to open browser and go URL ?

For example, we can do it in VB like

Shell("iexplore [url=")]")[/url]
Shell("firefox [url=")]")[/url]

Again, how can I set target for the opened window like _blank ?

I would like to create a applet that opens windows in specific target.
I would like to open window in Iframe name "main".

Thanks so.
