  1. Hi, This applies to Windows. My program creates data files with a new extension, say *.abc In the JetPack I can set the file association so *.abc files are opened by my executable. That works fine. Also, I can set an icon for the executable itself. That works fine too. However, the icon I get for the data files is created by Windows automatically using the icon set for the executable. Is there a way to set a different icon for the data files? Jose

    Size of installation exe

    Thanks for the reply, however, I already have a license for the Standard edition and I do have the latest 4.8 version installed. I went through the documentation before making my posting and I already tried what the documentation says. For instance, Excelsior's web site page says go to the Jet Control panel documentation and see Step:3 "Select a compilation mode". I did that and I found myself baffled; the options seems to control the size of my own classes, not the huge set of libraries packed in the rt directory. I would like a sincere response from the moderator. Is this promise of obtaining a 10M installer available for the Standard Edition or is it available only for the Professional Edition?

    Size of installation exe

    I have the following: The final installation exe generated by JetPack II is 28M. Those 28M become 63M (disk foot print) after installation. The installed executable (a moderate Swing application) is 14M; therefore the rest of the installation foot print is due to Excelsior and Sun runtime libraries. My questions are: 1) I have a Standard Jet installation, would the size of the intallation exe be much smaller if I purchase a Profesional version? 2) Is it possible to remove some of the dlls/exes from the rt directory (rt <JET Runtime for J2SE 1.5.0_09>) shown in JetPack? If yes, what is the right way to find out which ones could be removed? Thanks,

    Bug in resulting executable?

    Hi there, I downloaded the trial version of Excelsior JET; great product! I started compiling a drawing program I have in hands, but I found a bug in the resulting executable. I could reproduce the bug with this simple test: import java.awt.*; import java.awt.event.*; import javax.swing.*; import java.util.*; import java.awt.geom.*; public class iftest extends JFrame implements MouseListener, MouseMotionListener { String text="Nothing"; public iftest(){ addMouseListener(this); addMouseMotionListener(this); } public synchronized void mousePressed( MouseEvent e ) { int i = ( e.getModifiers() & InputEvent.SHIFT_MASK ); int job = 4; if( job == 4 && i==1 ) { text="Pressed and i==1"; } else if( job==4 && i==0 ) { text="Pressed and i==0"; } else text= "Failed"; repaint(); } public synchronized void mouseReleased( MouseEvent e ) {} public synchronized void mouseDragged( MouseEvent e ) {} public synchronized void mouseClicked( MouseEvent e ) {} public synchronized void mouseEntered( MouseEvent e ) {} public synchronized void mouseExited( MouseEvent e ) {} public synchronized void mouseMoved( MouseEvent e ) {} public void paint(Graphics g) { g.setColor(Color.white); g.fillRect(0,0, getSize().width,getSize().height); g.setColor(Color.red); g.drawString("Click on the canvas",20,50); g.drawLine(50,50,200,200); g.drawString(text,50, 100); } public static void main(String[] arg){ iftest f=new iftest(); f.setSize(new Dimension(200,200)); f.setVisible(true); } } If you run this program using java SDK 1.4.2, you'll see that whenever you click on the frame, a message "Pressed and i==1" or "Pressed and i==0" is displayed depending on whether you used the SHIFT key or not. However, if you compile it with the latest JET evaluation version, the message "Failed" is displayed when you click without using the SHIFT key. It seems the problem is in compiling test expressions of the type "Expression && value==0" Using java 1.4.2 (Sun's cobundle download with NetBeans), Windows XP on a HP laptop. Let me know if you require further information. ~fbbb
