Java to Exe

Below is a list of a few software that allows anyone to create executable files from java jars.

  • JSmooth .exe wrapper: The JSmooth is a wrapper that creates a jar from the .jar files. It creates machine-specific executables for Java programs or executables. The prerequisite to the application is, one should java 1.4 or higher installed on the machine. If no virtual machine or JVM is installed beforehand over the OS, the wrapper automatically downloads and installs the suitable required version over the OS. Sometimes, it redirects the user to the URL where we can download the user-desired version.

  • JarToExe 1.8: The JarToExe1.8 tool allows users to convert Java jars into windows specific executable files. These files are easy to run over command line argument format or using wizard mode. We can also provide icon and version information to the converted exe file. For instance, there are any failures or issues, generated log files help in debugging and providing assistance in the event. The exe file can install or uninstall the exe file on its own. These files can be encrypted and henceforth protect java applications, and while the course of their execution, no temporary files are generated. The user interface is also friendly to use.
