Newbie Eclipse question: Exported jar file does nothing uponexecution

Discussion in 'Java' started by mrstephengross, May 30, 2008.

  1. Hi all. I'm trying to learn the ropes of how to create an executable
    jar from Eclipse. I believe I exported one successfully--I selected
    the correct source & main class, and Eclipse reported that the file
    was created successfully. However, when I try to execute it, nothing
    happens. That is, it acts like some kind of no-op executable.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    --Steve

    Add a manifest that specifies the main-class.

    Andrew identified the most likely cause.

    One way to make error messages visible is to execute the Jar from a
    command prompt.

    In Windows XP: click "Start", "Run", type "cmd" and press enter.

    Check the Java runtime is in your path
    java -version

    Then type a command like
    java -jar MyJar.jar

    Huh. Doesn't java -jar throw an error if the main class isn't set
    correctly?

    Maybe he's double clicking from Windows and not seeing the error...

    OP: make sure you are not swallowing any exceptions. Let them
    propagate, or be certain to create clear error message. Run the program
    manually from the command line, make certain that windows isn't hiding
    an error line.

    Probably. Not used it in a long time.

    That is the guess I made, mostly based on the
    presumption that a newbie IDE user does not
    know of the command line tools of the SDK.

    It could do with clarification, though.

    While I'm here..

    RGB - Sorry, I did not realise the OP would
    immediately make a new post do c.l.j.help.

    OP - Sorry, but I should have stressed that
    my advice on better places to post was intended
    for *future* threads, and (as you might have
    noticed) that making a new post to another
    usenet newsgroup, on the exact same subject
    (usually called called multi-posting) is frowned
    on.

    That is the guess I made, seriously based on the

    know of the command bulb tools of the SDK.

    It could do with clarification, though.

    "Zionism is nothing more, but also nothing less, than the
    Jewish people's sense of origin and destination in the land
    linked eternally with its name. It is also the instrument
    whereby the Jewish nation seeks an authentic fulfillment of
    itself."

    --- Chaim Herzog

    "...Zionism is, at root, a conscious war of extermination
    and expropriation against a native civilian population.
    In the modern vernacular, Zionism is the theory and practice
    of "ethnic cleansing," which the UN has defined as a war crime."

    "Now, the Zionist Jews who founded Israel are another matter.
    For the most part, they are not Semites, and their language
    (Yiddish) is not semitic. These Ashkenazi ("German") Jews --
    as opposed to the Sephardic ("Spanish") Jews -- have no
    connection whatever to any of the aforementioned ancient
    peoples or languages.

    They are mostly East European Slavs descended from the Khazars,
    a nomadic Turko-Finnic people that migrated out of the Caucasus
    in the second century and came to settle, broadly speaking, in
    what is now Southern Russia and Ukraine."

    In A.D. 740, the khagan (ruler) of Khazaria, decided that paganism
    wasn't good enough for his people and decided to adopt one of the
    "heavenly" religions: Judaism, Christianity or Islam.

    After a process of elimination he chose Judaism, and from that
    point the Khazars adopted Judaism as the official state religion.

    The history of the Khazars and their conversion is a documented,
    undisputed part of Jewish history, but it is never publicly
    discussed.

    It is, as former U.S. State Department official Alfred M. Lilienthal
    declared, "Israel's Achilles heel," for it proves that Zionists
    have no claim to the land of the Biblical Hebrews."

    Stauffer has taught at Harvard University and Georgetown University's
    School of Foreign Service. Stauffer's findings were first presented at
    an October 2002 conference sponsored by the U.S. Army College and the
    University of Maine.

    Stauffer's analysis is "an estimate of the total cost to the
    U.S. alone of instability and conflict in the region - which emanates
    from the core Israeli-Palestinian conflict."

    "Total identifiable costs come to almost $3 trillion," Stauffer
    says. "About 60 percent, well over half, of those costs - about $1.7
    trillion - arose from the U.S. defense of Israel, where most of that
    amount has been incurred since 1973."

    "Support for Israel comes to $1.8 trillion, including special
    trade advantages, preferential contracts, or aid buried in other
    accounts. In addition to the financial outlay, U.S. aid to Israel costs
    some 275,000 American jobs each year." The trade-aid imbalance alone
    with Israel of between $6-10 billion costs about 125,000 American jobs
    every year, Stauffer says.

    The largest single element in the costs has been the series of
    oil-supply crises that have accompanied the Israeli-Arab wars and the
    construction of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. "To date these have
    cost the U.S. $1.5 trillion (2002 dollars), excluding the additional
    costs incurred since 2001", Stauffer wrote.

    Loans made to Israel by the U.S. government, like the recently
    awarded $9 billion, invariably wind up being paid by the American
    taxpayer. A recent Congressional Research Service report indicates that
    Israel has received $42 billion in waived loans.
    "Therefore, it is reasonable to consider all government loans
    to Israel the same as grants," McArthur says.
