I have written many java programs with JBuilder 5 personal and wanted to move to Sun's program the j2sdk-1_4_2_04-windows-i586-p.exe
Launching this j2sdk-1_4_2_04-windows-i586-p.exe now put Java Web Start on my Desktop. Is there a way to get my programs to run in that environment of a Java Web Start? Seems that all it wants to do is to jump to demo's that are on the net and archived at Sun.
And when I used several of the demo's that are included in the jre, they do understandably OK if they are an applet . But if it is a application that requires a frame,then it needs to have the application in a .jar and then launched by a html page.
How can I get my application programs to run wthout putting things in a jar and then launched by an applet?
