Dear E4 Enthusiasts
is it possible at all to open (through a menu entry, hence through a handler) a url in a new "default windows browser" window?
It's very easy to open a SWT Browser window, I know, but in our case we need to open the default browser that the user hat set for his machine.
I didn't find any documentation on this anywhere.
Thanks for your help

Laura
