Im wondering if there are any add ins or free programs that allow you to build a standalone executable for a java program in eclipse.
I do not want to make an executable jar, but a .exe file.
Thanks for your help.
Another option. Google for "Java AOT" for native compilers. However, it must be noted that these compilers won't be able to compile some Java code -- particulaly if you use reflection.
As for the eclipse plug-in, what is it that you are looking for? If you just want to compile the code, then it is probably best to call the compiler from an ANT script and have eclipse call the script.
