Invoke Java program on user PC via browser response
Hi guys, I'm new to this forum.
Please share your idea with me if this works or not.
I'm trying to see if it's possible for my user to trigger an action on their browser, then at my Web application, it returns the control to the user PC, WHICH NEED TO TRIGGER A JAVA PROGRAM on user's PC.
Is this possible? How can I do it?
It is doable, but not trivial.
You will need to register a shell protocol in the client side, say myProto to point to your java program. Now your web page will need to hold an href to such a protocol link.
You can test you registration by running Start -> Run -> meProto

You can download the GreenTea software at the above website. The software allows you to execute commands on remote machines, as well as controlling PCs via web browsers.
It also allows you to create a virtual supercomputer on a network of PCs.
