Hi all,

I've just successfully launched my Swing app (developed in NetBeans) from the distributable files created automatically at building.

But here's the problem...

I've created a Windows short cut to the app using the java directory as the first command and the location of the jar file as the parameter... It runs...

Except first, it displays a black terminal window on the screen. If I close the terminal window, it closes the app. Probably it's because the GUI is launched from a non-swing component based class, no?

Is there a way to stop my jar file launching a black terminal window thing before launching my Swing app? It looks untidy!

thanks for help,

Robert

Welcome to the Ranch

I think the suggestion to use javaw in the thread Fred quoted will probably help.

Unwarranted flattery will get you anywhere!

But, glad we could help
