HI, How can I hide the console window in any swing/AWT application if we are running it by clicking on BAT file or are there any other way to run swing/AWT application in which console window does not open? I just want swing application run without any console just like any other Windows application. Regards Ikram Soomro (SCJP2, SCWCD)
use start and javaw together in a .bat file. Like so: start javaw -jar maccc.jar or start javaw -cp .\myjar.jar com.filenabber.MainClass This causes the console to flash for just a second but disappear afterwards. brian
or when creating the jar file, include a folder called META-INF with a file inside it called MANIFEST.MF which contains the line "Main-Class: yourmainclassfile" without the .class extention. when you double click the jar file it will automatically run your program.

Thank you very much Brian Pipa and A. Wolf. Both ideas are great. Regards, Ikram Soomro (SCJP2, SCWCD) [ April 08, 2004: Message edited by: Ikram Soomro ]

Just an FYI - Wolf's idea won't work in Windows when you have .jar files associated with an unzipping program (like Winzip). brian
