Compiled Java Program Distribution

Compiled Java Program Distribution

Compiled Java Program Distribution

I have created a Java based menu system for a CD that I want to distribute to friends and family. My compiler (Jabaco) has added an EXE wrapper to the menu file. Since I don't know if the end user has Java, I think I should add some java run-time files to the CD, but I am not sure which files to add (i.e., Java.exe or Javaw.exe) and how to make my menu recognize the java run-time files. Any suggesting as to which files to add and how to associate them with my EXE menu would be appreciated.

Thank You... Ronnie

RE: Compiled Java Program Distribution

It is a pity that you didn't search for any of the hundreds of ready-made, existing, and easily configurable cd-menu programs, but created your own :(

The chances that Joe Average has Java installed, and will allow it to run an unknown program from your CD is close to none. Unless clear instructions are included. But they still need to have Java installed...

RE: Compiled Java Program Distribution

Hi Tonhu - I agree with you and my first choice was to find an existing CD menu program. Unfortunitly I could not find one that meets my needs and the one's that did wanted to much money for registration. Thanks for your reply. Ronnie
