Hi all,
I am looking for a feed back on what my next step is.
So I finished my app that I am developing ( bunch of jar files, logging file and config file) and it is time to give it to a customer
I know my customer is running windows. How would I go about packaging it? Or what is typically done after coding is finished?
I am thinking to put the file structure in a zip file. Also inside the zip file there will be the Java Online installer. From my java main app, I will check what java version the systerm is running ( execute the command line) and if it is less than 1.6 then I will execute the java online installer.

Does this sound like a good way of doing it?
My user is not technical ( I hope unzipping it is not an issue though )
Thanks alot

What kind of application is it? Web Application or a Desktop Application?

From what you say, it looks like a standalone desktop application. But would rather confirm from you.

Hi
Yes you guessed right. It is a desktop standalone application.
Thank you for your efforts

For a commercial application delivered to a Windows customer, I'd package it as an exe file. There are many products that will do this for you, most are fairly inexpensive.

That's the same thing I had to say!!! exe is the best way to do it. Even a non tech-saavy people can do a next-next-install!!!
