Re: Make an application out of a simple java server.
I've written a server that has no user interface (at the moment).
If it's a "server" then normally someone who knows servers installs it
and decides how to best do that on their system.
I'd like to make a platform independent application out of it.
What is the distribution method of java applications?
like.. is it a jar file and all systems just know what to do with the

Jar files are one possibility. I don't think "all users" know what to
do with a jar however. You could look at Java Web Start, I use an app
made by someone else which uses JWS and as a user I find it very
convenient. There's also various installers available.
How would i set the application icon.. is there a bundle format for
Just jar files, but I think both JWS and the installers above can set an
icon for you. In fact I'm sure JWS can.
