- Creating Windows EXE from Java (don’t ask):I found NativeJ the best for my task. I also tried JexePack, but it didn’t seem to do well with IBM JVM (it says that unregistered version will just show a modal dialog box on startup, and it did on my machine, but when I tried running it on the WebSphere box, it seemed to create an endless loop with those modal dialogs. Finally, Excelsior JET is good, but too complex for a little task like this — creating an executable involves too many steps skipping over things I don’t need. The interface is not the best either — too much like a wizard, too little like an IDE that it really is. But maybe it’s good for bigger, more involved projects.
