hi,
i wanted to open a document using Internet Explorer/Netscape.
what i am planing is that to generate reports for printing, through crystal report application or using IE as there is inbuilt facility for printing & report generation.
As per above code i could open Internet application through swing, but i cannot open specific file which i wanted to print in that application.
Concept---
1)step open internet explorer/ crystal report generator
2)step open a document of html file for internet explorer or open a document of crystal report in crystal report.
3)step after opening file in html format/cry. rep. we can print the file as we want.
import java.util.* ;
import java.io.* ;
public class IE
{
public static void main ( String[] s )
{
try
{
Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime();
Process p = rt.exec("C:/Program Files/Internet Explorer/iexplore.exe");
System.out.println("IE OPENED");

}
catch(Exception ex)
{
System.out.println("Error occured"+ex);
}
}
}

can anybody please help me out of this situation?
Thanking you

Hi,
I think you can probably just send the file as an argument to IE something like this...

hope this helps,
regards, Ben.
