    Default How to run a jar file from a Button click in swing.

    Hi all,
    I'm new to this site and new to java programming.
    I have a doubt.
    Is it possible to run a jar file from a button click in swing.
    Help required in this. If possible can you post the code please.

    Thanks in advance.

    Not sure what you are asking.
    You can run/execute a program from a java program by using the Process and Runtime classes. Create a command line to "run the jar file" and pass it to the methods of the above classes to execute it.

    Have the button listener start a thread to do the above.

    Swing has nothing to do with this problem.
