Hi,

  i  want  to remove the Dos window ,  while  running the Java Application. i  know it  is possible  by staring  the aplication  by javaw. but  again this application  could be  started in a batch  file  only,  as it  has a lot  of parameters. so if  we  use javaw in  an batch file,  the process starts without  giving  output  in the dos  window,  but  the dos  window  remains there  because  of  the  batch process started. i  wanted  to  avoid  this. i  hope  u  folks  understood  what  i  mean. if  not  mail  be  back. a faster solution  to  this  is  appreciated.

Thanks,
Santosh

Put 'exit' in the last line of your batch file.

use

start java <your complicated parameters>
exit

the start command starts the java program asynchronously (that means it returns to the batch file immediately) and exit closes it.

Package your application as an executable jar.
It should then be able to be started (on Windows) by double-clicking on it.
If it isn't, then you'll just need to associate .jar files with javaw, the same way you would do for any other file type under windows.

Of if you've got a bat file already then just double-click on it.
