Hi, I am wondering if it is possible to open a url from a java application in the most recent browser tab, i.e without spawning a new tab to show the specified page.
I have done a bit of searching on this topic, and the command

is the usual suggestion. This opens a particular URL, but it opens it in a new tab. Is it possible to override the new tab command?
Thanks,

Eoin.

Tab/Window are your browser specific settings. I do not think it would be possible using the generic command (windows) you have rightly quoted.

There might be something like flags or arguments e.g. firefox.exe -tab but that would be tie it down to a specific browser/version.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
