The Desktop class was added in Java 6 to handle launching associated applications on the native desktop.
Following shows how to launch the default mail application and open a mail composing window.
Desktop desktop = Desktop.getDesktop(); desktop.mail();
Or you can use a mailto: URI to also fill out the address field.
Desktop desktop = Desktop.getDesktop(); desktop.mail(new URI("mailto:email@example.com"));
