NativeJDK9AppTemplate

Demo project that shows how to create native Java applications with small runtime images (App.exe + Runtime etc.).

Javapackager does not optimize for minimal runtime size. JLink on the other hand does not create native launchers (only launch scripts). This can be problematic, e.g., for app distribution to the Windows AppStore. Combining both commands results in optimal runtime images.

Command Line

Navigate to the Gradle project (e.g., path/to/NativeJDK9AppTemplate) and enter the following command

Bash (Linux/OS X/Cygwin/other Unix-like shell)

sh gradlew createFinalAppBundle

Windows (CMD)
