View Full Version : XCode export java
Mar 2, 2007, 12:40 AM
I'm wondering, with XCode, is there a way to export a java app file as a single file, so that i can open it without going into XCode and telling it to build and run.
Theres a file ending in ".app" so i thought that this was the file that i needed but when i run it it just opens then shuts right away without doing anything.
Can i export from xcode or do i need another program to do that?

What sort of Java app is it, tool, Swing or AWT?
I just did a test and built the AWT default project of Xcode. It produced a .app file which runs outside of Xcode with a double click.

It's AWT but the .app it makes doesn't run outside of XCode.
I can open the file but all that happens is that the coffee cup icon apears in the dock stays for a sec, then disapears, it doesn't run the app that i made.

I'm not sure what the problem could be. Have you tried compiling the default AWT application and seeing if that works?
You can also try running your program from a terminal window. You never know, perhaps it will spit out some error message. To do this use the 'open' command, eg:-

I tried using terminal to open it but i get the same thing where the coffee cup apears in the dock then quickly dissapears

i also tried copying and pasting the code into a new AWT app of the same name but i get the same problem from that app.

Perhaps it's worth looking in the system console (in Utils) for any error messages. If you put a link to download your app I can try running it on my system. I guess that might help narrow down the problem. I don't know what else to suggest, I'm out of my depth now!
