I want to be able to launch PDF documents on DoubleClick.


I was doing the same in RCP by doing the following:

Program.launch(filePath);

Is the same thing possible with RAP too?

Program.launch(path) generally will not do what you want in RAP. In a desktop app, it instructs the VM to launch the associated file handler, but in RAP, since it is now running on a web server, what it likely would do is launch the app on the server and not on the remote browser client which invoked it.

You should instead look into a download handler or org.eclipse.rap.rwt.service.ServiceHandler to be enabled on user interaction.
