    Default Putting Java Programs on a DVD

    Hello, I was wondering if it is possible to put Java programs onto a DVD so that when I put the DVD into my TV, it will run my program. I know on many DVDs nowadays there are games and quizzes and such, so obviously somebody out there can put executable code onto a DVD, I was just wondering if it is possible in Java.

    Thank you

    Only if the DVD player provides a Java Virtual Machine. In general, I doubt that is the case...
    The Java Tutorial. Read it.

    Even in others, your player had to have a permanent storage mechanism (HDD) as well as the resource management technique (OS) to execute executables from the DVD.

    I figured it wouldn't be likely in the conventional sense, but there are certain things available in other languages (such as this: Mac Dev Center: DVD Playback Services Programming Guide: Introduction to DVD Playback Services Programming Guide), I was just wondering if maybe somebody had some clever solution for Java that I wasn't aware of.

    Thanks

    Seems to me your link described how to use services, basically how to control your DVD drive programatically. That's not what you are looking for, isn't it?
