Java EXE?

Had come across an article about Excelsior JET. It is able to convert Java application into native executable file for specific platform.

Just wondering will reflextion still work when it was converted into native executable. And is it possible to convert a JAR file into a .dll.

Yes and yes. Excelsior JET supports all Java features required to pass the compatibility tests, and that of course includes reflection. And yes, you can make a DLL from one or more jars and call it from an EXE also compiled by Excelsior JET or from a native app using JNI.

See the respective sources under the samples/ directry of your Excelsior JET installation.
