Hi,
When I run java executable file in Windows, A DOS output windows will pop up. Can we RUN java executable file without DOS output windows by adding some configuration?
Thanks

Use javaw instead of java to run the application.

An other approch is redirect the output to a file.
Example : java TestProgram >> out.txt
Here the output will be printed in out.txt file.
One useful thing about this approch is it will be useful to trace in case of exceptions.

I don't understand the purpose of the javaw command. IT DOESN'T GIVE OUTPUT!!!
My questions is, what is the purpose of javaw?
Thanks

If your program is supposed to give output to the console window (DOS Prompt, et al.), then use Java to start the program. If it's a GUI application, then you can use Java or Javaw to start the program.
At least as far as I'm aware.
