Is there a way to launch a windows application(.exe) from within a java application? i am trying to implement it in a project which needs to open up the WORDPAD so that further functions can be done by the already existing editor.I dont like to design an editor. So if anyone can help me , please give me some hints..
This is maximum an intermediate topic, and the headline could have been choosen better.
Look for System.Runtime, to find out how to call an external app. If you get path and name of the application (wordpad.exe) dynamically, your application could work on Mac and Linux too (which don't know wordpad).
