I would like a .app for my mac release
.exe for windows one
and ill use a .jar for my pure java release.


The question is what tools have people leveraged in the past to accomplish this?

I think you should try jarSplice or something.

It can make windows, mac and linux files out of jar files I believe and also compile libraries or something.

Just zip for .apps. and tar.gz for Linux for examples.
For Windows we make our own .exe launcher that invokes the JVM natively. The Windows versions are shipped as NSIS installations. NSIS is great - and free.
We sign the Mac and Windows distributions or the OS or browser or antiviruses that infest many people's machines delete them before the user even gets to run them, or puts the fear on them with scary warnings.

In all cases we bundle the JRE inside the distribution. Never rely on system JREs (not even on Mac any more), and don't bother with a pure Java .jar release.

Do you sign the JARs or the whole installer? How do you achieve that?

Yes. i believe that is what he is saying. they cert. sign their jars.

Otherwise.. you may get a security warning - which scares users.
Or some anitvirus may elect to just delete the jar thinking its unsafe or just an random internet download.
