Hi guys,

so far, all my applications are running through the command line. I creat a MS-DOS Batch file and I type the run command: java -cp myJar.jar myMain...

I wonder if there is a way to simply double click on an icon and run the application avoiding the batch file.

Anyone?

Thanx

Ppr

You can define Main-Class: myMain in jar file's manifest file and then change the propereties of jar file to open it with java. Specify the location of java in path & anyother classes or jar files used by jar fiel to be executed- in classpath variables(environment variable in Control Panel of Window).

thanks looks like a good solution. I'll do that.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
