Hi all,

I have written an application.Now i want to deploy it in different machine . For that i am planning to create " .exe " file, which will set required environment variables and path required for my application.

Can any one please let me know the procedure for creating ".exe " file for java application.

The way to create double-clickable applications in Java are Jar files. Using them obviates the need to set paths and environment variables.

Well, the benefit of using jar files would be that the application isn't restricted to one particular operating system. They don't solve the problem of downloading and installing JREs, of course.
 
I miss the old days when I would think up a sinister scheme for world domination and you would show a little emotional support. So just look at this tiny ad:
