Playing maxpat files from the Java side

    Hey,
    I'm a java developer and I'm trying to play a maxpat file from a java application.
    Is that possible?
    Thanks,
    Ronny

      Hi Ronny,
      If you mean executing a .maxpat from a Java environment outside Max (using Java instead of Max) the answer is no.
      If you look inside the .maxpat you'll see that this is just a big JSON object storing the information about the max-patch. this information will be only useful to max.
      but you should be able to open a .maxpat with max from the Java environment.
      maybe you can search around this:
      Runtime.getRuntime().exec();
      AND (java.awt.Desktop):
      Desktop.getDesktop().open();
