I'd like to send an URL from a Java application to a browser , either Navigator or IE. If the browser is running, it will visit the site specified automatically. Otherwise, the default browser should be activated to visit the site.

Is this possible ? If so, are there samples ?

Commented:
Netscape Navigator and IE have command line options that
enable an application to invoke them and cause them
to display a URL.

Netscape Navigator command line argument is:
  -h <URL>
You'll have to do some research about IE's command line options.

  Thats it, bye.
