You can display HTML content in Java Applications using the JEditorPane Class this Class supports text/plain ,text/html and text/rtf content type just go through the API documentation provided by SUN.

Yashraj Chauhan, I think you did not understand the question asked by
mathsyaka. He just wanted to know if there is anyway he could load up a browser when a button is pressed from his application. He was not looking for a class the supports html.

I wish I knew how to do it, I would have to him. So, if you think you know it, just show him a typical example. Thank you for your time.

try looking into the Runtime class, it has a exec method that you could use to shell out commands to dos, it'll launch the web browser for you, but this might only work for windows, not sure about other OS. to test is manually open dos and type something like:
start www.yahoo.com
this should open a browser with yahoo.
