How to create an AWT App

Hi,

I have tried to create my own AWT app that I could deploy via the Web Console.

I cant find documentation on how to create the JAR file, but I have tried to replicate the JAR that exists for the TicTacToe example.

When I try to synchronize from the AWT client on my PC I get the folowing error message

<b>

Cannot find the mandatory manifest file entry "ApplicationClass" for application xxxxx.

Therefore the application does not get installed.</b>

I have an entry in the Manifest file named ApplicationClass

Any help ? or and example would help

regards

Paul

    Hi Paul,

    I have exactly the same problem as you, but am still struggling. Can you explain in more detail how you got around this?

    You would think that the MDK takes care of these kind of details when you export the project to a .jar file, or that you have at least some sort of UI to set the main class for the project etc., which then generates an appropriate manifest.

    Thanks.

      Neelan,

      we use Netbeans because for our AWT app, we want a UI with more functionality than the standard AWT and with Netbeans it is very easy to add additional components(we decide to buy instead of development) to the Netbeans IDE. I don't think it is possible to add beans component to eclipse. I also use eclipse for the same app, especially for the MDK plugin.
