Is there anyway a Java Program can open and run a flash movie? Going further can it put the flash movie iside a frame?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Atrus,
You might check:
Flash Player SDK
but there seems to be no Java API. The macromedia forums might be a good place to check.

As a separate application you may launch the Standalone Flash Player via the exec(..) methods in java.lang.Runtime.

I don't think that SDK will work for me.

Thanks for the Runtime methods, but how would I put it into a Frame? I may not always want it to be stand alone.

Use the Runtime.exec() thing only when you just want to launch an external process.
For embedding the Flash Player in a Swing GUI, you might try a component that allows for ActiveX integration in Swing. There's one which is not free though:

Maybe there are others, I don't know!
