OS X launcher internals: dock icon

Discussion in 'Java' started by Larry Barowski, Jan 20, 2006.

  1. I'm working on a Java-version-independent launcher (replacement
    for the "java" executable) for OS X. In Java 1.4 and higher, the
    launcher communicates the dock icon to the JVM using the
    environment variable APP_ICON_<pid> . In Java 1.3.1 (at least,
    Java 1.3.1_15 and _16) the -Xdock command line parameter is
    supported, but it seems that the icon is not passed to the JVM
    through an environment variable. Does anyone know how the
    icon is passed?
