I am using Windows 2000.

I don't want to open again if it is already opened.
Thanks,

use a flag
set it to 'true' just before opening the HTML page.

That works to a certain point... what if the user then closes the browser... how does the flag get reset? I don't think there is any way to have this degree of control over another application... The only way I could even think of doing this is waaaay to difficult for the results... using an applet in each page and have your Swing app listen for what applets are active... You could use RMI, Sockets, CORBA, JMS, etc. but I would think that the difficulty of doing this would be greater than the ability to make sure a page isn't launched...
