Suggestion for Beginners FAQ

I've been reading on the web about various places to create an exe from Java because my company just released JWrapper. Its a pure java (so will run on almost anything) tool to create signed, iconified native apps for Linux, Windows and Mac. Its free to use including for commercial apps so I'm just trying to contact a few places to see if they would be interested in mentioning it as an option where they list similar things.

I noticed that the beginners FAQ mentions this in no8:

http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/JavaBeginnersFaq

but only mentions an option for OSX so I wondered if anyone would be interested in mentioning it under that FAQ and possibly also under the OSX FAQ?

thanks

You can announce your product in the Blatant Advertising forum.

I think that would be fine, as long as as it doesn't come off as too much of a product ad. That page is part of a wiki, so everyone can edit it (log in with your Saloon credentials). There are links to many commercial products in the FAQ.

Thanks for the quick replies guys.

I have to say I was quite disheartened by Bear's reply but then I realised that rather than being mocking hostility there actually *is* a "Blatant Advertising" forum!

What a great idea. I liked the signup terms of service too this is obviously my kind of place.

I will certainly head on over there and give it all I've got. I'll have a poke around the FAQs too and mention JW if its appropriate. If it suits I can post back on here with any additions so you can have a look and modify/remove them if they are too commercial?

Bear - I just ordered your Ninja JS book btw, looks good and I've been meaning to sort out a better understanding of JS.

I guess I should have made that a link. *

Cool, thanks. It's getting good reviews so far -- hope you find it helpful!




* Good example of how written communication can be easy to misinterpret. It reads completely differently depending upon whether you picture me saying it with a scowl or the intended smile.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
