eyeOSembedder

I found this small app for the PC, which is supposed to make it even easier to throw together simple, one line apps for eyeos/oneye.  It's written in java (src included), but I can't figure out how to make it run.  I followed instructions in the readme file but double clicking the jar opens it as an archive and the CLI command just fails with a "cannot access the file" error.  Does anyone know anything about it?

Re: eyeOSembedder

It's hard to help you without having that JAR around. Do you have Java Runtime installed? Try this using the command line and enter "java -version". You'd get an error if Java is not installed.

Afterwards you should be able to run it using

java -jar "PATH_TO_JAR"

Re: eyeOSembedder

It's really small so I will send it your way.  I know I had to get some heavy duty java to run Runescape, maybe I don't have everything to run this app.  I will check that too.

Re: eyeOSembedder

That actually worked!  thanks!  I had the right java.  I was just missing the QUOTES in the java -jar command.  I now have a little box asking for input.  I'll test it out.  Might be a keeper.

Re: eyeOSembedder

I've used this embedder app now to create two small apps.  One loads in VirtualAtari.org, the other is simply a youtube video.  I see where it can be a huge time saver, but the results aren't perfect.  They could use some minor tweaking. These aren't errors in the traditional sense. The created apps would have worked fine without tweaking. It's more like minor differences between current oneye and whatever version of eyeos the embedder was written for (I'm thinking 1.5 or 1.6). Additionally, if you make a mistake in the creation process, it doesn't always catch it.  Using spaces in the app's name got me twice, but the embedder app doesn't catch it. I'm thinking since I have the source and the JDK, some of the glitches could be fixed, and "recompiled" or whatever java calls it.
