    Really Portable..???.



    Hi,

    Can one create an .exe app in Java and take it and run it on
    another machine?Do I have to take all .(dot)java files to all the machines
    that I want to use my app in and run javac/jview in
    a batch file?

    May be my question should be...How do I deploy applications to
    my User machines?

    Your help would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Khumbula

    Each user machine must have a Java runtime environment (JRE) installed. You
    distribute the class files (*.class), not the source files (*.java). To run
    a Java program (a class that has one of those public static void
    main(String[] args) methods), you'll probably still run "java MyClass" but
    this will refer to the "java" executable in the JRE. The JRE documentation
    should explain this, it will vary depending on where it runs.
