Maven Cross-Platform Launcher Plugin 0.2.1 alpha released

less than 1 minute read

The third release of the Cross Platform Launcher Plugin is now available.

This Maven 2 plugin allows you to create launchers for Java programs on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.

See developer area for more information.

This release is tested on Windows 2000, Windows XP, Mac OS X 10.6 and Ubuntu Linux 10.04.1 LTS.

Apart from testing on all platforms, this release…

  • Fixes a Linux launching bug where the error code was not being returned correctly
  • Changed the Windows-specific janelType configuration property to be available in all builds, and renamed it launcherType. It only makes sense on Windows or MacOSX. Use of janelType now fails the build with a message saying “use launcherType”. On MacOSX, use the console launcherType to create a structure like that used on Linux; GUI is still the default and still creates a .app structure.
