Java App On Mac OS

Startbeitrag von André Labuschagné am 25.08.2017 11:41

Hi All

A bit off topic here. This Java app does most of what I want it to do and it looks pretty cool. Before I invest too much time in it I was wondering if any of you have installed a Java app on the Apple Mac before and what you used to do so. I need this to be seamless for then end user.

Any ideas are welcome.



Hi André,

as I remember, the Java program is started from a web page. When making the Java application from WD22, there should be a .html file which will start the Java program. Alternatively, Java Web Start should do the job for more complex Java programs https://www.java.com/en/download/faq/java_webstart.xml

Hi Guenter

I can run the jar file by simply copying it to the Mac and running it there. So that is not a problem.

The problem I have is that users are going to need to get this installed on the Mac somewhere with an Icon that they can select. So I am looking for something that can create a file that can be installed on a Mac.

Hi Guenter

Thanks a ton. I saw some of those and have a much better idea of where I am headed with this.
