I am trying to find a way in order a java application to be able to access a running instance of Firefox or IE and pass a URL to open. Searching around i encounter the Java-DDE library which in a way solves the issue but still it is a legacy technology and this doesn't solve the problem on a Firefox running on Linux.
The basic idea behind is to be able to pass a URL to any given web-based application, with no access to the source code or any API and off course ready to deliver in Win or Linux.
