What is needed to get my java app to work on another PC?

P: n/a

Hi,

I have made an java app and i want to do an install wizard for that. What
do i need to do to make my java app work at another persons system that doesnt
have anything with java installed. Is it enough with the Java VM or most
the complete Java(TM) 2 SDK/Java(TM) 2 be installed?

Does Classpath or/and path need to be set? Is there somthing else that need
do be done? And finally can you recommend any program for making install
wizards that is good and easy to use and that is good for java applications.
Best Regards

Hi,
Yes having JVM would do the job... but with regards to classpath ..
you can alwaya include the jar files your application uses in your
distrubution .... and can give a batch file or a shell script which
sets the class path...
or you can use
java -cp jar1.jar;jar2.jar ... and so on in the batch file or shell
script which launches the application ......
wise installer should be a good package ...
but from what i have seen most of the java applications are just
zipped and distrubuted ... along with a batch file to run the app...
so i would highly recommend that ... all the user has to do is unzip
the files into a folder and execute the shell script which launches
the app.
hope this helps
