Convert jar file to an exe file after a Build Job in Talend?

Convert jar file to an exe file after a Build Job in Talend?

Hi,

 

I have about 3 projects that would require executable file for user to run on their desktop using the job I created in talend.  I am able to produce a .bat file and .jar file.  However, it would be better if I can convert any of those files to an exe file.

 

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to do this?

 

Thanks.

Talend doesn't support this, but you might be able to use this http://launch4j.sourceforge.net/

 

I would question why you want to do this though? This *may* limit the functionality available when using the Jar and bat file. For example, you can specify contexts and context variable values using the bat and jar....not sure you will be able to do this if it is wrapped in an exe. As far as a user is concerned a bat file will act just like an exe anyway.
