How to create a stand anole application?
Hi, I have created a java desktop application and got it running perfectly, but how can I make it a stand alone application? I have a jar file, but attempting to run that from the terminal (I use a MacBook Pro intel computer) gives me the java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/swing/GroupLayout$Group meaning I don't have the necessary libraries for the application to run. But I don't want to have users run the application from the command line anyway. I would like a stand alone application that will run by double clicking it. Is this possible? And if so, how? Thanks in advance,
How to create a stand alone application?
Sorry for the similar posts. I couldn't change a misspelling in the title and thought it would be ignored. It's true all the required libraries are in the dist folder, but still I get the error when trying to run the application from the terminal window.
By "stand alone application" I mean an application that runs by itself by opening it or double clicking its icon. Most users aren't savvy enough to call an application from a terminal -- as remedial as that may be -- so I wanted to create something more user friendly. I am developing an application for lung cancer researchers, and I want to make it as user friendly as I can.
I can bundle all the files in a single jar file, but still I am not sure that would work. I thought NetBeans would certainly have a way to create a stand alone application (my definition) from a desktop application. Am I wrong?
