Passing paramters to Desktop Developer Application

Hello QlikView Experts,

i currently have to check the feasibility of a certain requirement:

A java application should externally start up the locally installed QlikView Developer Application, start a certain QV App and pass parameters to this Application (which then should be handled within variables).
Is this in any way possible? Has someone successfully implemented this scenario and could provide me with technical details?

I think this is possible with web reports, passing parameters in an URL and maybe also by OCX elements, but I have doubts it is possible to start up the local installation and pass a parameter to it. But in this case it's the only way to do it, because the power-user should be in the position to edit the report, which is (as far as I know) not possible in Web Reports.

I am very thankful for any input on this case!

Okay, I figured it out. Sometimes it helps just to look at the reference manual 😉
Here it is stated that you can pass variables by command line, i.e. via batch file.

Here is an example:
qv.exe /r /vMyVariable=123 abc.qvw
