I am new to Java. What is the best process to get an Application executable to run on a client PC. We are using Ant where I work is this the best step to take.

Also, when you build an app in Eclipse why is it you can save a program to a .exe instead of have using javac.

Thank You,

Justin

Yes, despite its problems, using Ant to build your software is a good choice especially as compared to running a build from only your IDE (Eclipse). From Eclipse, you can execute this Ant build script. Just make sure you can also run your Ant build without needing to use Eclipse (i.e. from the command line; this is necessary for CI to work)

Never seen that before. How do you do that?
