Concept Behind Java executable

Hi All,

I know that there are some tools available that can create an executable file for java code. Can anybody please tell me what is the concept behind that. Dont we need JVM in that case?

Actaully, I am in process of creating some commercial desktop application using java. So my question is, is there anything that java provides, besides the copyrites law, so that another user cannot see/use my code.

Thanks and Regards

You may use JBuilder's native executable construction wizard... It's extremely easy to build one, using that JBuilder's feature... I don't think users cannot see your source code as well in this case...

BTW, are you talking about windows .exe file or executable JAR file in windows? :roll:

Thanks Ko Ko,

Yes, JBuilder was the option i was thinking of.
And I am asking of windows.exe. Beause from Executable Jar, again anybody can see the code.
