Launching Java Application...
Posted on 2001-07-20
I'm looking for instructions on how to launch a java application 'for dummies'.
If I send a jar file to somebody that knows nothing but the commandline to start the application... how do they do it on Windows98? Do they need to install the java runtime? Can they launch it from a dos prompt window or the 'run' box? Can it be launched from a browser? Since my appplication uses Jini do I include the needed Jini jar files?
This is the Client application only that will connect to the server over the network.
It requires the rmi daemon, how can this be run without leaving an open dos prompt? Is it possible to run rmid.exe without leaving an open dos window?
Same for the Client applications... can it be run without leaving an open dos window?
