How to make Java write to a NEW browser window
I have a program that writes its output to an html file.
I have the program check to see if there is supported browser and then the code (currently used) opens a browser window for writing like this . . .
. . however, the problem is that if there is a browser window already open, then this will open a new tab in that browser window and then writes the output there.
I would prefer that the program would always open a new browser window.
I have looked at . . .
. . however it does not help. In fact I am having a hard time finding any documentation about how to have Java write to html files.
So, any help or guidance would be very much appreciated.

You may want to re-think your design.... Why do you want to do this? It should probably be the user's choice about how their web browser handles new pages.

Based on feedback, from the users of this program, some of them prefer that the program open a new, separate browser window when it displays the output.
So, once I figure out how to do this, then I will give the users the option of either choice.

So, is the question not clear?
Or, should I be asking this question in the HTML Forum?
Again, I would really appreciate any help.
