Can we lauch a browser (IE) from within a java application ? Probabily impossible at present ?
If possible then we can easily access a web and navigate that site.
Thanks for comments

Hi Rulin,
Its possible. There is a yahoo group by name 'JViews' , in that there is an interesting discussion on launching different browsers. I am sorry i don't have access to that site from my office, so please find yourself.
Goodluck

Ram,
Thanks, As I said if possible then we can easily access a web and navigate that site from within a java application. It would be a very important technology for system integration.
How to access this JView group.

Thanks
Ruilin

Ruilin,
Another possibility is to use the HTML parsing and display technology (the old HotJava browser) that is already built into Java Swing. I know that this is covered in detail in the Manning book on Swing...

Hi Rulin,
About a year ago, i have actually seen a book built with java swing and it acutally displays html pages one after the other, it was actually a wonderful book i have ever seen. I am not talking about book made with paper but one made with java swing.
Here is JViews group
good luck!

Ruilin,
Another book, Elliotte Harold's "Java Network Progrmming", covers Swing HTML with one chapter. Also this book covers URL/URLConnection (what you need too ).
Because many of the Swing HTML related classes are nested classes, and the documentation is weak, you do need a book covering that topic.
