hi, can we create executable binary files from the java source file on unix platform. i know this is possible for windows platform. i don't know how we can do on unix. i will be thankful to you if you can solve my problem. regards, Anurag
You need to find a compiler for Java on your "special flavor" Unix. I only know one: GCJ It is the Java version for the well known and supported GCC. The problem is that it just works for AWT applications (in beta, I guess) On windows (JDK or with JBuilder) there is a tool called javaw.exe that make possible to execute class files without the dos console. I don't find this utility on Unix distribution of JDK. Anyone knows more details about javaw.exe , it is not documented in JDK docs.
