How to build an executable file for a Java 11 GUI application using Launch4J
Before we look at the how perhaps we should ask the question of why. The aim is to package up our Java application so that we can distribute it to others. We want them to be able to launch the application without having to install anything else.
Therefore, what we are looking to deliver is our Java application along with the Java Runtime Environment and any external libraries required for it to run. To do this will need a few tools:Continue reading “Creating an executable file with Launch4J and Java 11”
Since Java 9, there is no longer a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) shipped as part of the Java Development Kit. The JDK provides a tool to allow you to create your own JRE. In this article, we will look at using this tool to create our own JRE.Continue reading “Using JLink to build a Java 11 JRE”

Breakout4J is a JavaFX single-player game based on the old Atri games console game called Breakout. This is the application that students build from the ground up as part of the online course “How to design and build your first real application in JavaFX”.
This is a follow-on article for building Java desktop applications using OpenJDK11 and OpenJFX 11. See
- Making a Windows MSI from a Java 11 and JavaFX 11 Desktop application
- Create a Linux Debian package from JavaFX 11 desktop application
In this article, we are, like the previous articles, going to build the whole application using the command line.
The software tools we will use in this article are:
- OpenJDK 11
- OpenJFX 11
- OpenJFX 11 modules
- Wix Toolset 3.11
See the earlier article Making a Windows MSI from a Java 11 and JavaFX 11 Desktop application for more information about these tools
What is different here is firstly the application is going to take advantage of the modular system introduced in Java 9. Secondly, we are going to build a Java Runtime Environment that includes the JavaFX modules our application requires. We will then package up the Java application with the JRE however, this will leave us with a JRE for any other Java applications providing the modules they need are included in the JRE.
