Portable Java Apps

I use several Java-executable apps on my USB thumb-drive. These should not require additional development (but this seemed the best forum anyway Wink

PLCash.jar - a personal finance program
JTides.jar - a tides calculator
SatFinder.jar - a satellite finder (for television, hams, etc)

All the above can be found at http://www.arachnoid.com. Be sure to read the developer's statement about what he calls "CareWare".

I am a big fan of Java-executable apps due to their platform-independent nature. If anyone has other Java-executable apps, please post them here.

java

I use:

RSSOwl (rss reader, really the best I have found, java or not)
Eclipse (i develop some java)
Freemind (idea manager, really really a must have)
datastudio (if you have need to access databases this is king, both free and shareware versions)
LDAP broswer (LDAP tool, nice)
HSQLDB (database, sql based, really nice to develop on portable)

FreeMind

FreeMind is a new one to me. Looks intriguing - I'm downloading it now to check it out.

Thanks!

It saves its data on the

It saves its data on the windows data dir, I use this .bat to move prefs on my usb-key

-------------------------------------------------------------------
rem copy data from key to disk
copy "t:\tool\freemind\auto.properties" "%USERPROFILE%\.freemind\"
copy "t:\tool\freemind\user.properties" "%USERPROFILE%\.freemind\"
copy "t:\tool\freemind\patterns.xml" "%USERPROFILE%\.freemind\"
rem run java from key
t:\tool\jre\bin\java -jar lib/freemind.jar
rem save data back to usb-key
copy "%USERPROFILE%\.freemind\auto.properties" "t:\tool\freemind\"
copy "%USERPROFILE%\.freemind\user.properties" "t:\tool\freemind\"
rem clean
del "%USERPROFILE%\.freemind" /S /Q

Of course, this wipes any user data that the person whose account you're using has for freemind. I haven't tried it yet, but something like

t:\tool\jre\bin\java -Duser.home=t:\tool\myProfile -jar lib/freemind.jar

should be a cleaner way to do it.
