Hi,
I am designing a FTP program where the client should receive the file automatically and also open that file with the assosiated application.
For e.g.,
if there is *.doc file then it should start winword
if there is *.ppt file then it should start Power Point
if there is *.xls file then it should start MS Excel

How do I do that ?
thanks
Pratik

Check out bridge2java, you may be able to use that and it's free anyway:

This doesn't appear to be related to threads; the folks in Java in General (Intermediate) will probably be happy to throw themselves at this problem
