    "Very easy to use, a must have for java developers"

    February 24, 2006   |   By dstevenmick2

    Version: Executor 2.1

    Pros

    Quick and easy conversion of java "jar" files to windows Executable format.

    Cons

    Some of the documentation for changing windows resources could be spruced up, and it took some digging to discover how to create an application icon for the executable that didn't cause the executable to crash. I found the companion program WinExecutor more usefull.

    "Does what it is intended, great instructions"

    February 23, 2004

    Version: Executor 2.1

    Summary

    This let me build a replacement for instant saxon for MSJVM-less Windows installations. I was able to include the JVM I wanted to use, adjust resources to access it, and move on. Reviewer Howard is providing an uninformed negative review. Why is this better than JBuilder? Well I don't write Java, I just wnat to run java apps quickly, sanely, with a simple call, double click, or drag-and-drop. READ the instructions.

    "students used successfully immediately"

    December 23, 2003

    Version: Executor 2.1

    Summary

    I teach AP Computer Science, and my high school students adapted to the demo version of this product like a duck to water. The only issue was packaging a .jar file correctly in the first place, but that is not the province of this product.

    "It Works"

    April 05, 2003

    Version: Executor 2.1

    Summary

    My life would be a lot easier if all products worked as well as Executor. It's easy to use and fast.

    If you're looking for a utilty to make an .exe out of your executable .jar, look no further.

    "I take it back"

    December 18, 2002

    Version: Executor 2.1

    Summary

    I just ran the executables I created using this program on a machine that doesn't have a Java Runtime Environment, and they didn't run because the machine doesn't have a JRE. Arghhh, doesn't that defeat the purpose???

    "Better than JBuilder"

    November 12, 2002

    Version: Executor 2.1

    Summary

    JBuilder itself isn't free, and the free personal edition is for non-commercial use only.

    Executor is $25 for a corporate site license with no restrictions on how many executables you create or where they are distributed.

    Plus it's more flexible, because you can easily integrate it with your build scripts and systems without having to fire up JBuilder to run a wizard.

    Plus you can customize where Executor looks for the Java VM and have control over which versions are supported. JBuilder only supports whatever is listed in the Windows Registry.

    And Executor did get high marks for ease of use!

    "JBuilder can do it!"

    November 11, 2002

    Version: Executor 2.1

    Summary

    Why should I pay $20 for a thing that JBuilder can do for free?
