Record/Insert new Java Class/Apps in a Robot GUI Script?

Record/Insert new Java Class/Apps in a Robot GUI Script?


Was wondering if anyone has successfully managed to take any custom Java classes/apps (written in .java compiled .class files) and insert them into a Rational Robot 7 GUI script recording.

I have input all of the information on the dialog box that appears when the "Insert Java Application" button on the GUI Insert toolbar is pressed (while recording the script) but the working directory option on this screen keeps screwing me up.  It only seems to run the Java JRE/JDK if I leave this value completely blank, and when it does, I don't see my application run as it is supposed to.  

My Java app is a SWING application with dependencies on other classes/packaged directories.

Would it be better to run this app in a Java IDE (such as Eclipse) while recording and then use this information?  

Maybe Robot can pick up on the objects in the applicatoin without me specifying this item, or perhaps I can hack the SQABasic code manually by stitching all of this together?

Any thoughts/ideas on this most welcome.
