How to launch reports (done with Crystal Reports) from a Java application?

    The idea is: to have some buttons in the Java application, and each
    will invoke a report when pressed. The reports are implemented in
    Crystal Reports, so they are .rpt files. When a button is pressed, the
    corresponding report should be launched in order for the user to view
    it. Is there a Java method for this purpose? Or is there a method to
    execute a system command in Java?

    Yes and yes...

    You can launch a System command using System.exec(). You can also
    locate a Java library for viewing Crystal reports if you browse
