Hello
Please help me with the following: i am trying to open a file with a specific application using java. I am working on a desktop application.
The following code using java.awt.Desktop works for known extension types,but when trying to open a file with an unknown extension it throws an exception. I know this is about to happen, because it's in the class documentation, but what i want to ask you is if there is another way of popping up the windows "open with" dialog through java. I just don't want to let unknown extension file types untreated. This is the code i use, and it works,just that it throws an exception for unknown file types:

Thank you very much


A later review :

the problem was solved running a windows process:
