Opening another application by creating WEB TABS

Is it possible to open another application on the click of a customized WEB TAB. For EX: If a user needs to launch an internal application maintained by the customer. Can we lauch this application when the user click on customized WEB TAB.
If yes can someone assit me to understand how to go about this feature.

When you create a web tab you can specify the endpoint that should be loaded.  If you provide a url to your application it will load in the tab.  Try entering as a test and see what it looks like.

When you specify your url you can also pass some parameters such as standard user fields or custom fields. i.e. the application being loaded may want to verify who the user is.


Thanks for the response. What I actually need is to launch another exe which may be installed in the users desktop, This will ask for a username/passwd and then launches the application based on the login credentials.

Is there is any way to merge Lead Id with URL on web tab?

so i should know the Lead Id(which lead is selected) and on the basis of selected lead i can show the report running at my local server.
