Can someone help me find

A while back, I remember seeing a guide for taking a java application and making it portable. I went through 10 pages of the search function, trying to find it, but it's eluding me. Also, are there any guides to taking a java app, and get it to recognize and use jportable?

I'm looking at portablizing a program called Arachnophilia. I am trying to get some experience making a few programs portable, so I can give back to the site. My plan was to start simple, then start choosing software that was more of a challenge. This program should be portable already, or nearly portable.

Sorry, it looks like I deleted my package after all. However, you can read this section of the PAL manual, and refer to some of my java-based apps, such as Bookbinder Portable for a real-life example of how to do it. There may be more needed than I've done with that app, though, such as what's needed in JabRef Portable.
