I wonder if any one can anwser a question for me.
I am working on a signed applet project which I would like to be able execute a non java executable on a client system. That is I would like to be able to do the following: jar up a windows .exe, as part of the applet jar file, then upon execution of the applet copy the .exe file to the users C drive and run the exe from the applet to gather some system information. I do beleive that this cannot be done, but I figured I would post a message to see if it can be done or possibly be done in a method that I am not aware of. I have searched a bit on this and cannot seem to find what I am looking for, or I am not searching for the correct thing.
I am basiclly looking for systems info, that is why I need to use a exe (raw sockets, etc.) and require some system level calls.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
