Any chance you could make it possible to specify which JRE was necessary? I don't mean which version, but who's. I have a prog using the qt-java bindings that is stable with IBM's JRE but not Sun's (would love to figure out why but haven't yet and am tired of it)

Don't think I'll ever distribute it, but if I did I would need to specify that IBM's JRE was necessary.

How about adding support for generating executables for Windows and Macs. Is that possible? Otherwise it seems like a great software, I'll try it out when the english versioun comes out :)

We use some "linux only" code, so it will be difficult to port to other OS, but when we have the linux version like we want (with some other features that we are working on), maybe we will think to port it to win (we cannot do anything for mac since we do not have access to any mac).

I didn't mean porting it to windows. I mean just generating the executables on Linux.

The problem is that we will need different ways to find an installed JRE, check all the requirements and launch the java application, one for win and other for linux.
But like I said before, when we have the linux version "stable/finished" we will think to to port it to win.

First of all I wanna thank you for your sugestions.
About other languages, we are working on that and in a few days it will be translated to english, then we will post a file in the j2bin home site so everyone is wellcome to help translate it to other languages.
We are also working on a couple new options and changing the j2bin generator to an easy-to-use wizzard type.

pEk
