I am trying to issue an open from my web app to launch a third party software application. I also need to minimize the browser window in order to operate the the newly open application. Once I finish with the tasks I need to close the third party software maximize my browser window and return to my Web App.
Any ideas on how to:
Open or Launch an application from your web app or web page
and on how to maximize and minimize the browser win from a web page.
if you have any ideas I like to thank you in advance for helping out.

You can start another program using one of these:
Runtime.getRuntime().exec("cmd /k start run.bat");
(cmd on WinNT or use command /k on Win95/98)
or
Runtime.getRuntime().exec("notepad.exe");
