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:someone@acme.com"));
