Spark source exe

After I compile my spark source I can run startup.bat in windows.

How can I run spark in Linux and where can I get or make a spark exe for windows so I dont have to have the java dos window open when I run startup.bat.

Any info is helpful.



you could use “javaw.exe” to run it in background, maybe together with “start”. I did post a similar bat script some months ago.


Excellent advice.

It lead me right down the right track and I now have a solution.

I altered the startup.bat batch file to call on javaw.exe like this:

start /b C:\Progra~1\f1-spark\jre\bin\javaw.exe

So my script is now as follows:

start /b C:\Progra~1\f1-spark\jre\bin\javaw.exe -Dappdir=… -cp …/lib/spark.jar;…/lib/base.jar;…/lib/smack.jar;…/lib/windows/jdic.jar;…/li b/smackx.jar;…/lib/smackx-debug.jar;…/lib/dom4j.jar;…/lib/activation.jar;…/l ib/mail.jar;…/lib/xpp.jar;…/lib/xstream.jar;…/resources org.jivesoftware.Spark

This loads Spark with no DOS window in the backgroud.

Thanks again.
