First of all I'm sorry for the title, I didn't get a better wording for that.

In Grails, when you deploy you get a WAR file. What output do we get in Griffon ? Is it JAR ?

What are requirements for the end-user to use Griffon application ? Is JRE enough ?

Is there plugin which creates EXE file instead of Jar ?

Many thanks,

Kuba

Griffon can package your application in 4 modes by default:
- single jar: useful for single file distribution and deploying to the JavaStore too.
- binary zip: typical distribution, like the one you got by downloading griffon-<version>.zip
- webstart: all webstart related jars and files
- applet: all applet related jars and files

However there is an installer plugin (http://griffon.codehaus.org/Installer+Plugin) that can produce native launchers and installers. Currently supported:
- universal: using IzPack
- linux: via rpm
- windows: using JSmooth
- osx: using app bundler

Cheers,
Andres
