Java Launcher is a powerful Java tool and an easy-to-use software, which contains
nine features totally:
Six launching features accessed in windows explorer (see picture 1)
Run java applications and applets by
double-clicking class files in explorer
as if they are normal
windows executable files.
at same time, the software can check class errors (such as package error)
and monitor streams for java exceptions
Display java source code in text format and class hierarchy in graphic
format by right-clicking class files in explorer
class files are not restricted to application and applet classes, they can be any.
Examine contents of jar and zip files in
details without extracting them by just one right-clicking in explorer
source code of class files, java, html, xml and all text formatted files
inside those compressed files are displayed by interfaces of the feature.
Compile thousands of java files by
just one right-clicking in explorer.
a perfect option allows java files to be compiled as a whole, directory by
directory and file by file.
Execute thousands of applications and
applets by just one right-clicking in explorer.
it detects applications and applets from class files automatically and
provides all options required.
Debug thousands of applications and
applets by just one right-clicking in explorer.
it automatically provides signatures of fields, methods, classes and more
for stop-in, watching and tracking with debugging process.
Two creating features (see picture 2)
Create windows exe files
the software compresses all class and other files (such as image files) into
a single exe file.
the exe file can be launched by double-click in windows
explorer as if it is a normal windows executable file.
user icon, arguments of java method main(), system and user classpaths can be
added to the exe file.
you can distribute the single exe file to your customers without other
Create executable jar files
the jar files are compressed from all class and related files and compatible
with multiple platforms.
you can launch java application by double-click the jar files if using windows.
And Java Help System (refer to
Picture 3 and 4)
The software automatically generates an advanced Help System for JDK (or)
J2SE documentations without spending your any energy and time.
JDK documentations can be downloaded from java
sun, normally you should have them unzipped in your computer already.
Java Help System contains 4 pages (Contents, Index, Search and Favorite)
on left-side window, it can displays not only html files as other help
system does, but also all text formatted files, class files, jar and zip
Once you have the Java Help System installed, your programming speed and
qualities will be accelerated because you will get all info you need
faster and easier.

Double-clicking to run java applications
If your download is slow, you can read followings, which describe popular java technologies and software.
JRE and J2SE (JDK)
Following main versions have been released so far
1.1x, 1.20, 1.2.1, 1.2.2, 1.3.0, 1.3.1, 1.3.2, 1.3.3, 1.4.0, 1.4.1, 1.4.2, 1.4.3, 1.4.4, 1.5.0 (5.0)
Differences between JRE (runtime environment) and JDK/SDK (development kits)
from version 1.2,J2SE can be installed in two directories: JRE and JDK,
which are slightly different.
unique in JRE: javacpl.exe, jucheck.exe, jusched.exe (in top bin directory)
unique in JDK: javac.exe, jdb.exe, jar.exe, appletviewer.exe, javadoc.exe,
javah.exe, javap.exe, jarsigner.exe, htmlconverter.exe,
serialver.exe, packager.exe, rmic.exe, jconsole.exe, jstart.exe and more.
public in both: java.exe, javaw.exe, javaws.exe, keytool.exe, klist.exe,
servertool.exe, policytool.exe, and tools.jar.
unique in JRE: charsets.jar, deploy.jar, javaws.jar, jce.jar,
jsse.jar, plugin.jar, rt.jar (in top bin directory)
unique in JDK: dt.jar, tools.jar, htmlconverter.jar, jconsole.jar.
JDK contains a sub-directory (named JRE also) which has same contents as JRE.
the most differences are unique jars in JDK, such as tools.jar, if we use them
as classpaths, we have to ask users to install them also.this also affects to j2ee, j2me. be
careful with the difference even it is very slight.
Curently, most of operating systems support java, such as Windows (95, 98, 2000, XP, NT, Me),
Macintosh, console, DOS, UNIX, linux, solaris, redhat,
Mac, palm, Pocket PC, Microsystems, Workstations, and Workgroups 3.11.
Java IDEs (IDEAs, editors)
which are very helpful for java programming, followings is main list of them we found
on the internet:
Eclipse, Netbeans, Borland JBuilder, Microsoft J++, IntelliJ, Sun one studio (Forte), JCreator, BlueJ,
we also provide a new java IDE: syncjedit, hope you enjoy it.
Those IDEs involve a huge of techniques, such as JavaBean, Ant, Swing, jdt, pde, toolkits,
xhtml, php, apache ware, servlet, mobile phone, tomcat, remote network, telnet, ejb, webapp,
hprof, webservice, alert, ftp, webservice, midi, harddisk, hackman, jad, spec, webcam,
webcast, desktop, struts, calendar, wireless, archived shortcut, docking toolbar, website,
droplet, autoconf, jakarta, LAN, WAN, over-riding, (enabled, disabled) controls.
Plain java and/or related editors
Their main purposes may not for java (such as text, XML, HTML, XHTML).
NotePad, Dreamweaver XM, Hex Workshop, Abyss Web Server, Macromedia Contribute,
TextPad, PageBreeze, AceHTML, Hackman Hex,
HomeSite (5.5), Arachnophilia (5.2), Crimson (3.7),
JawaBeginner (1.6.2), Source Edit (4.0), Adobe GoLive CS, HotHTML 2001 (1.0.10),
EditPlus (2.12), Namo WebEditor 6.0 Suite, Metamill (4.0), Mobiledit (1.95),
most of installation tools can help to handle setup of java programs for
distributions, main tools are:
Install4J, Launchanywhere, installanywhere, installshield, inno, Astrum InstallWizard.
Decompilers (disassemblers, parsers)
Java classes can be decoded by many software, it means that classes are not safe
for encryption and encoding of security issues
(i.e. credit-card, checkOut, shopping cart).
Normally decompilers are developed using c++ and do not require JVM.

database (oracle, mysql, access sql server) and driver (jdbc, odbc), db2, dbase,
embedded statements or native query, decompressions, class loaders.
Language conjunctions and interactions
if you know other languages, such as C++, VB, Delphi,
dll, registry, extension. they are supported and compatible with hot web browsers,
such as microsoft IE, Netscape, firefox navigations.
Forums, web-logs and boutiques
They are cool and online Webs for exchanging, analyzing and communicating ideas and
knowledge, discussing and getting feedbacks, respondings, instructions
you even can submit, subscribe, distribute, upload and announce java info there legally,
you also can find useful samples, trusted apps, full freebies, integrated components,
dependency, projects, messages, bookmarks, problem repairs, bug fixes, symbols, daily FAQs and tips.
Today, most famous companies, orgnizations, hosts and domains
(Sun, Microsoft, dns, IBM, msn, SourceForge, eBay)
provide forums for us.
Software download sites
There are many sites (such as download.com and tucows.com) offer freeware, shareware and
informations in categories.
We can obtain new released, beta and updated tools, object oriented APIs,
code glossaries, libraries, summaries, animated graphics
