|Launch an external application in a shell [message #532377]

I think my problem is quite common but I cannot find any interesting answer on the Internet.
I have developped an eclipse RCP application, and I would like to launch an external application (it's a Java Swing app, but it could also be any win32 application) to display it inside an editor.
I know it's possible, because under the Eclipse IDE, when I click on an image to display it, it launches a "mspaint.exe" process and display it inside the editor (without the menu bar).
But I cannot found how to do it.
I've found a small article showing an SWT shell hosting a win32 application (winrar) and saying that it uses org.eclipse.swt.internal.win32.OS, but it does not say precisely how that was done, and moreover it's an internal and non portable API.
Any idea how to do this ?
Thank you for your answers.
