Sun's Forte launch is a .exe, so certainly there must be something in the Java packages to handle this operation? I'm a little confused... how could we have stand alone Java applications without an inherent way of clicking on an icon. I'm sure most of us don't launch applications from the DOS prompt? If I'm missing something, please point it out to me... ------------------ I'm a soldier in the NetScape Wars... Joel
Wait a minute, I'm trying to think of something clever to say...<p>Joel
One way of running a Java Application by directly double clickin on it is by making .bat file for the aplication. My doubt here is that if my application opens in a browser how does on give the URL in the address bar ? Any help ? subu
making a stand alone app with a clickable icon is really quite simple. Make sure you have your paths setup correctly though. Create a shortcut and make the target read something like this:
Then in the Start In directory enter the directory structure where your classfile is located:
Then go find a pretty icon on the internet and set it as the icon for the shortcut. The javaw.exe will also keep you from getting the ugly DOS prompt or DOS window when it starts...I do it all the time.
