run an application from another computer.
I have written an application that I would like to distribute to other PC's in my office. Can I make it an .exe file? If not what is the minimum amount of "stuff" I need to load on the other PC's?
Also, how can I run this program from windows without going into the DOS shell?
First of all, read my post on http://forums.javaboutique.internet....&threadid=797. This explains how you make an executable JAR and suppress the console.
You can make a Java EXE, but I wouldn't recommend it. Stick with JARs - it's nicer.
The "stuff" you'll need on the machine is simply your code and the Java Runtime Environment, which you can download from Sun.
I have found a better way. Download the JAR Wizard from this site and all your dreams come true. Then download the Java VM from sun.com and you're all set.
...well sure....if you want to take all the fun out of it....
