|launching external app when plugin button is pressed [message #753779]

Just getting started working with plug-in development. I would like to launch an external application programmatically when a plug-in button is pressed.|
I can use the "Hello, world" example to create a plug-in that has a button and see the "run" method that's called when the button is pressed, easy enough to understand that.
I can manually use External Tools Configuration to set up and and launch an external application (executable) that sends it's output to the console window, easy enough to get that.
Now I would like to programmatically setup and launch an external application from within the buttons run method. The external app is at a known path location relative to the eclipse home directory.
Any help is appreciated.
