I have a created scripts for running a Java appliacation on different operating systems (just Windows and Linux) called RunJ4 for free usage under the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE, Version 2.
Please read GNU/GPL for the full details. A copy of the GPL may be found at .

My vision is to create a user friendly starting scripts for running a Java application on various operating systems. I assume the end user will be a current person who has no knowledges about a Java application. Good idea can be to use these scripts to start a common Java installer too.

I have supported only two operating systems in this time: MS Windows and Linux or UNIX:

  • runJ4Win.vbs - VB script for MS Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP, 95+WSH, NT+WSH.
  • - Bourne shell script for Linux or UNIX systems

You can download a bundle with new release of the RunJ4 scripts and license on home page.
