How To Make A Web Launched Application

<< How to convert your Applet to an Application | FinalProjectsTrailIndex | Two Player Starter Code >>

Once you have an executable Application in a jar file, Use this to build a JNLP from this Web form (Digital Gemstones also has other tools, here )

For example, I made an Application called MatrixApp, and made sure MatrixApp.jar ran as an executable application. I then used the Web form at digitalGemstones and it made me the following file:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<jnlp codebase="" spec="1.0+">
		<vendor>Chris Thiel, OFMCap</vendor>
		<homepage href=""/>
		<j2se version="1.5+"/>
		<jar href="MatrixApp.jar" main="true"/>
	<application-desc main-class="MatrixApp">

I uploaded it to my web site, and now you can launch it here:
