Java to EXE

Posted by java_developer [send private reply] at November 19, 2002, 08:19:56 AM

I want to convert my Java programs into EXE.
As I am programming mainly for Windows , I don't want my apps to work under JVM.
Is there any free tool available that will convert Java programs to native machine code.
I have tried searching for it but didn't get any free one's.
If anybody knows then please reply.

This is GCJ, the GNU Java Compiler. It's clearly stated on the site that it can produce native code.

It may be platform-specific to Linux and it's probably a work-in-progress but depending on what you want to do, it may as well work.

A quick research on download.com returned half a dozen program one can use the wrap Java code into .EXE file. This is probably not want you want because target platform will still require JVMs to run your apps.

Search for 'Java EXE' on download.com. Some of those apps are free.
