Thanks for the help Brad, Bob, and everyone else! The JAVAW worked great!! Being able to click on a icon and have our Java programs run, with out that ugly little MS-DOS window popping up is great!! Thanks also about the info on the JAR file, I have begun reading up on using JAR files and it seems like a great feature. Brad (or anyone else) - One quick follow up question, we are using Java 1.2. And we could not find the "JRE" or "JREW" command. But while doing some research into the JAR files, I saw a note saying that starting with Java 1.2, you could now execute a JAR file from the "JAVA" command, where you could not earlier. Since 1.2 now supports this feature, did Sun get rid of the JRE function. Or does it still have a separate purpose? Again thanks for the help, we had been banging our heads over that first question for a while.

If you don't want to run your Java program with a DOS console, use JAVAW or JREW instead of JAVA or JRE. These commands launch the Java interpreter without the console. You could then make a Windows shortcut that calls JAVAW directly. You can also put your application into a JAR file that can be run just by clicking on it. Unfortunately, that's beyond the scope of this document. :) Brad Grier Linoma Sofware Surveyor/400 - The Java AS/400 file editor and explorer: http://www.linomasoftware.com ----- Original Message ----- From: Richard Dean <email@example.com> To: <JAVA400-L@midrange.com> Sent: Wednesday, June 09, 1999 10:52 AM Subject: Follow up to the Java Applet Question. > > We are in the very early stages of research(time measured in days not > months) into using Java on our AS/400's.
