Apache Commons Launcher - Cross platform Java application launcher


Commons-launcher eliminates the need for a batch or shell script to launch a Java class. Some situations where elimination of a batch or shell script may be desirable are:

 * You want to avoid having to determining where certain application
   paths are e.g. your application's home directory, etc. Determining this
   dynamically in a Windows batch scripts is very tricky on some versions
   of Windows or when softlinks are used on Unix platforms.

 * You want to avoid having to handle native file and path separators
   or native path quoting issues.

 * You need to enforce certain system properties
   e.g. java.endorsed.dirs when running with JDK 1.4.

 * You want to allow users to pass in custom JVM arguments or system
   properties without having to parse and reorder arguments in your
   script. This can be tricky and/or messy in batch and shell scripts.

 * You want to bootstrap system properties from a configuration file
   instead hard-coding them in your batch and shell scripts.

 * You want to provide localized error messages which is very tricky
   to do in batch and shell scripts.
