    Hi All
    Thanks for your answers to my last post.
    Now, i use installshiled to package my code and GPL code to a
    single installation exe. When install, the installer will show the GPL
    license and install the GPL code first, then mine. After installation,
    my code will detect where is the GPL code(jar file) and call the
    functions within that GPL jar file.

    And finally , my program is able to distribute as a commerical
    product, closed-source. Perfect?

    thanks
    from Peter ()

    No, I don't think so. You can't distribute GPL'ed software that you
    link with your non-GPL'ed application. Read the GPL FAQ for more info,
    especially this section:
