Open file in default application with unsigned webstart

Is it possible to open a document in the user's default registered application (on the OS) from an unsigned Java webstart application?
I don't mind if the user gets a warning, but the only thing I found was the ability to save a file (also with a user warning), but I'd like to automatically open the document generated by the webstart application in the default application on the OS registered for the file association. In this case either a *.xlsx (Excel/OpenOffice) or *.xml file

Any ideas?
