Of course you can.

The question is what does the link do? If, for instance, you are accessing servlet urls that don't return any exotic content, then it is as simple as opening the URL. I do this when I am converting to a Swing app from a servlet app so as to not lose functionality during the rewrite.

The problem arises when you need to deal with complicated content like flash etc... If you do need to deal with that kind of content, you could always command line invoke the default browser giving the url as the argument.


(e.g. java.lang.Runtime.getRuntime().exec("iexplore http://www.somelink.url/");

Hope this helps.
