"javaw.exe" does NOT prevent popup of black command prompt when starting GUI *.jar prgm

Discussion in 'Java' started by Ulf Meinhardt, Dec 28, 2009.

  1. I read that when I start a GUI based java program with

    javaw.exe -jar myprgm.jar

    instead of

    java.exe -jar myprgm.jar

    then NO black command prompt console window is visible/poped up (under WinXP).

    This is not true!

    javaw.exe shows the command prompt window as well (in addition to the actual GUI window)!!!

    Is there really no way of preventing the popup of the console?
