Application exe that does not install addition s/w
posted 12 years ago
Hello Computer Folks, I am deploying a java application to a client that doesnt have the java runtime environment installed. Not only that but because of the nature of the business, they can not have any addition s/w loaded other than the executable itself....Therefore do any of you folks know if it is possible to have a java application placed on another machine that doesnt include the installation of any additional s/w...i.e jre??? Thanks, frustrated
There are some products that can make stand alone executables from Java programs, depending on what your program does. However, even by compiling a Java program to an exe you are going to have tons of additional .dll libraries, which could be counted as "additional software". It sounds like you'd be better off just developing this in C if your client is that stringent with their systems.
