Splash Screen for JET compiled Swing App

Recommended Posts

Has anyone out there had experience with creating a splash screen exe wrapper for JET compiled GUI applications?

I have a Swing based Java application that takes 30+ seconds to load on a Celeron 2.0Ghz Windows XP box.  I am trying to write an exe in Delphi that puts up a splash screen immediately, then launches the JET compiled exe.

The trouble I see is that I can't detect when the first GUI window actually opened, so I will have a hard time knowing when to hide the splash screen and exit the launcher program.

Any ideas?

From our experience there is no need to use the wrapper. The only thing that you need is to put Splash screen java code in the begin of the initialization of your application. In this case, splash screen will appear in two seconds maximum and you will have full control of the bahavior of your splash. For instance, you will be able to show progress of the initialization. JET Control panel and JetPackII are orginized in this way, for instance.

Hope, it helps,  :)
