Howdy folks. New user here, apparently with the same name as that other guy. Newish to Java programming, and I hope this is easy to solve.
I would like to present to the user a list of electronic resources in various formats, like PDF, HTML, Word, and URLs to external web pages, and when a link is clicked on, open it in the appropriate application, whether it be Acrobat, the default web browser, or whatever. I can store whatever information is required, like path and file type.
I'm hoping there's some simple resolution, a method like SomeoneElsesProblem(pathname). But I only know such a small fraction of all of the Java tools out there. I haven't started rolling any code yet because I just want to get an idea right now if this is going to be a sticking point. The rest of it would involve forms, text matching, stuff that I've done before.
