About

After we written a java application by Eclipse, we should type a command like "java myapp.class" or "javaw -jar myapp.jar" to run our application. Though we can write a .bat file on Windows or write a shell script on Linux to do the job, it feels not very convenience.

The aim of this project is to develop a plugin for Eclipse to wrap compiled Java applications and give out a excutable file. It is supposed to support both Windows and Unix-like Systems.

This plugin will consist of two main parts.

  • A editor of ".launcher" files. The ".launcher" files contain the required information to generate a executable launcher.
  • A wizard that generates the executable launcher. The wizard can get configuration from users step by step or load it from some ".launcher" configuration files.

Deliverables

  • Java Executable Wrapper Plugin (include source codes)
  • The documentation of the project including user guides and manuals.
