I have implemented my server functionality through the new System tray API in JDK 1.6.
But, the main problem i encountered is assigning it a icon through my jar. If i put an image in the submission jar, it would be
against the Bodgitt and Scarper requirement. For the time being, i have kept no image, but it looks transparent and non-indicative of server functionality
without appropriate icon.
Please tell me how if i should keep it image'less or i can put the image in the jar by any means not violating the must requirements.
There is no must requirement, so I didn't do it. But I know people who added images to their runme.jar and used them as icons for menu-items, buttons,... and they passed. Using the search engine you can find a lot of valuable information about this functionality, e.g. here.
