Description saulz 2007-01-13 11:08:37 UTC

I use NetBeans to make Java programs , now i want to make a MacOSX Bundle of my application.

I find this tutorial in :

But in my case don't works , because in use Matisse in NetBeans and this generate a folder lib with 
Swing layouts that i don't know where to put to make my Bundle working.

Would be a good idea to make an option in NetBeans to make a MacOSX Bundle of the current project 
or make an update guide to make MacOSX Bundle of the project of NetBeans.

Module Properties is for creating "resource bundles", i.e. files containing
localized (or localizable) strings.

Reassigned to module Form (makers of Matisse) as their members should have more
experience with issues like this one.

The whole content of the 'dist' folder is needed to run your application. (JAR 
files in 'lib' folder are refered to from the application JAR file - and are 
supposed to be in 'lib' sub-folder.)

I don't know how Mac OS X Bundle works. We don't produce produce platform 
specific packages/installers for Java apps. Reassigning to build sys if they 
want to keep this as RFE...

Changing to RFE, probably a project for our contrib area.

you can easy create a mac os x application bundle with the ant task jarbundler. Jarbundler is not part of the ant core
and must add separate but works very well and is easy to use.
