    launch a .exe in a portlet

    cpage cpage Novice


      i have to make a portlet which will be able to launch a heavy application.
      this is an old client-server application.

      for now, i use an javascript, and it's not working with firefox, just IE with security in the minimal level:

      <script type="text/javascript">
      function exec(e){
      if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('MSIE')> 0){
       var w = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");
       w.run('\"'+e+'\" module=x210030'); //module=x210030 is a parameter
       alert("Le lancement d'un exécutable n'est possible que sous Internet Explorer");
      <h:commandLink onclick="exec('#{AppCpageV2Bean.cheminApplication}');" // this is the path of my exe.
      styleClass="transv" >
       <h:graphicImage style="border:none" value="/images/CPage.jpg"/><h:outputText value=" Cpage V2"/>

      this solution is very very very dirty ! (isn't it !)

      but i don't know how to do it in an other way.

      thanks for help,
