  1. I have a JET-compiled application running on a Windows machine which I would like to provide plugins for at runtime.

    Ideally this would be done by placing a JAR in a specific location before starting the application, and then having it loaded to the classpath when the application starts.

    From what I've read in the manual re: MCM, I understand that this should be possible; if so, where should the JAR be located?

  2. Hi Kit,

    Thanks for your advice.

    I am making a Windows desktop application.  I intend to package files with it such as help files and JNI DLL files.  My help files are packaged in a directory called help/ and my DLLs are placed in the root of the package.  These files are liable to change as the project develops, and it is the inclusion of these files which I would like to automate, as much as anything else.  Is this currently possible?

    Hopefully I will have a chance in the next few days to test compilation from the commandline.

    Thanks again,


  3. Hi Kit,

    The main issue I've had is that there doesn't seem to be a way to change certain options without using the GUI.  Specifically:

    * the package contents

    * classpath

    * compilation options

    * icon

    * post-install actions

    * version

    * start menu location

    I'd also like to be able to generate upgrade installers as well.

    If this is all possible, please point me towards the documentation!



  4. Hi there,

    I'm looking to integrate Excelsior JET with a project which uses Maven to manage its dependencies and builds.  Is there currently a simple way to do this?  I've tried previously to integrate Excelsior JET with Ant, and was unable to automate the entire process.

    Searching the forums I found one post relating to Maven (http://www.excelsior-usa.com/forum/index.php?topic=1705.0), although it did not contain a solution.

    Automating the entire build and packaging process is fairly important to me to remove possibility of user error.  Any pointers toward doing this would be well received.

    Many thanks,
