OK, you've got two issues here:

a. managing resources. Not sure what's going on with Netbeans but i'm guessing there's not really a problem with including resources in the distribution and memory/heap
b. distributing the app. Yes, this IS tricky, mainly because Java has really slipped in the market and now has fragile support in the desktop environment. I wouldn't have thought it beyond the capability of the Launch4J people to ensure that a 32 bit executable run and do the installation, so make sure it's not your fault. Of course, this, if you'd got the resources thing sorted out, would have been better as a web app. Then you would not have distribution problems. Another thing you should really prevent is locking the app to one particular JRE. You should compile it for a lowish version, say 1.6 to be safe. Then if the user already has a JRE it will use it.



I appreciate you too. I have actually distributed a JAVA app using Launch4j. I am surprised that this is posing an interesting challenge. And I want to know why. The challenge is that it is meant to work offline (100%).

Ah OK. If you'd like me to take a look, you could maybe post a link to it for "my eyes only"?
I've messaged you about that
