How to start local application in Web Dynpro

Hi,

I would like to start a PC's local application (e.g. *.exe-File) in a Web Dynpro application, which runs on an (central) EP-Server.

What to do? What's the JAVA-Coding like? Thanks, Peter.

    hi,

    For starting applications like notepad etc.,

    you can ue the following

    Runtime r = Runtime.getRuntime();

    Process p = null;

    p = r.exec("file name eg.Notepad");

    But i think it will execute the files which are placed in system32 folder

    Check it !

    regards

    Hi Peter

    At what point do you want to launch the associated application of a file. Is it when the file to be opened is presented as an URL to the end user?

    Regards

      Hi Peter

      Interesting requirement. The only solution I could think of is one of the screen in your roadmap be a popup(JSP or HTML) that lauches an activeX control that can communicate with your local application. The activeX then posts the data to the server along with the SSO cookie which can be decoded to find the user from whom the request has occured(essentially because the ActiveX might not be able to aprticipate in the WebDynpro session).

      Regards
