Start an e4-RCP application using OWS

Post by armin »

Hello together!

We ran into an issue whilst trying to start an eclipse4-RCP application using OWS.
For the configuration in the jnlp-file you normally have to specify the jar of the application.

However we only have an .exe and multiple librarys which makes it difficult for us to transform it into a jar-file.

Is there a solution for our problem?

Thanks in advance and have a nice day.

I'm not aware of a possibility to launch .exe using OWS/JNLP.
Maybe you can wrap the .dll/.exe in a .jar file, and reference it in your .jnlp file using <nativelib>.
Anybody in the forum here have some experience with that?!

Just out of curiosity, did you manage to run your exe application with Oracle Java Web Start in the past? How did you do it?
