Create a simple application to open an EXE file on the window with JAVA

We will learn about how to open EXE file with JAVA. We use netbeans as IDE. So, please create new JAVA Application project. And a small form.


Step #1 Create few of label, combobox, and button from tool bar

I use few list item of combobox: Notepad, Window Explorer, Firefox, and Kalkulator as Target EXE

Step #2 Right click on Button to add action performed

Step #3 Use condition to select exe target

String target;
        String newTarget = null;
        target=(String) jComboBox1.getSelectedItem();
            newTarget = "C:\\Windows\\notepad.exe";
            jLabel3.setText(target + " EXECUTED!!");
        else if(target.equals("Window Explorer"))
            newTarget = "C:\\Windows\\explorer.exe";
            jLabel3.setText(target + " EXECUTED!!");
        else if(target.equals("Firefox"))
            newTarget = "C:\\Program Files\\Mozilla Firefox\\firefox.exe";
            jLabel3.setText(target + " EXECUTED!!");
        else if(target.equals("Kalkulator"))
            newTarget = "C:\\Windows\\System32\\calc.exe";
            jLabel3.setText(target + " EXECUTED!!");
            jLabel3.setText("Silahkan Pilih Salah Satu TARGET EXE");

            Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(newTarget);
        catch (Exception err)

pake percabangan switch kayaknya agar lebih tepat kalo untuk para newbie seperti saya. Kalo percabangan dengan menggunakan IF ELSE terlalu ribet bagi saya.
