use java to open another application  
Aug 9, 2004 5:35 AM



 
is it possible to create a program where another application can be invoked? for example, I have this java applet that has a a help button. when the user clicks on the help button, notepad opens and the help information becomes available. if this is possible, please teach me. I would like to incorporate this to my app. thanks!
