Spark disable exit button

Hi to all, i was wondering whether it is possible to disable the exit button once spark IM client is running on the users PC?

Thanks for your help,


Its possible with some tweaking and compiling Spark from source.

I created a patch to disable exiting. I also compiled a test Spark.jar for you.

I figured this maybe a good feature to have for Terminal server environments.

Let know how it works.

Thanks for your help, I am trying to follow the link however I am quite a noob at this, do I have to use tortoisesvn to apply the patch and compile with netbeans ? am I correct in saying this? I am trying to use tortoisesvn however I am quite at a loss on how to apply the patch.

Thanks for your help,


You can just install Spark 2.6 and replace the Spark.jar in the lib folder with the new jar I compiled. park%20No%20Exit%20Test.jar

Hi Joe thanks alot it seems to be working fine, should i wait for the 2.6 official release or is this release candidate stable? I already have 2.5.8 installed as the default client…

Allot of minor bugs have been fixed in 2.6. I haven’t had any issues with 2.6 in my environment.

I would test it for awhile to make sure that you don’t have any issues with it in your environment.

I have been using 2.6 for awhile now and it seems very stable.
