Jar Executable Files


sonesay

I have been supplied with a digital log book for use this semester and it comes in the form of a .jar file and a .mdb file. I tried running it on my mac but it crashes every time but it seems to run perfectly on windows xp. Does anyone have any ideas why? I thought .jar files would be computable on any platform.

I think this might help you to get the JAR file running on your Mac

In fact, .jar is computable on any platform, but somethings, like path Directory and serial port access it OS dependent, so the programmer has to threat these situation to work as many platform as possible

Java is compatible on any platform but only when there is a Java Virtual Machine running on the platform. For example in Windows XP, to run java programs you need to setup Java Virtual Machine (JVM) can be found in Sun.com. There different types of JVM, find one which can run on Mac. Good luck...
