Hello Friends,

I'd like to write a simple Hello World program. Once I have this program, I'd like to deliver it to a client, have that client install it and run it on her machine.

If you can provide some tips and/or references on the following, I'd greatly appreciate it:
  • how to develop an installer program which will check her machine for the JVM, if not present, it will install it
  • how to create an icon on the user's desktop
  • what is the best way to package the program (.jar file?)

  • Thanks.

    Thanks Avi. I had briefly looked at this before, so this is definitely an option. Thanks for the link.
