Can JMenuItem point to a HTML file that opens in IE?

I want the jMenuItem (E.g: Tutorial Help) to point to tutorial.html on my computer.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Pardon me if it can't be done.

catch(Exception e)

}
     }
   }

That opens notepad, although I'm not sure how to open explorer? But I reckon it's pretty close...

hey, thanks for that part! I managed to open up the IE. But the problem here is, I do not know how to get it to point to the URL "tutorial.html"

Sorry about that.

hey! No worries! I got it settled!

Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime();
Process p = rt.exec("C:/Program Files/Internet Explorer/iexplore.exe www.yahoo.com.sg");

and it works! wohoo!

Thanks alot!

But why do it like that?
Why not embed a web browser control in a Java window?
If simple HTML 3.0 is enough you can use standard controls for that, else you might have to find something on the web (or get creative and write your own HTML parser).
