      Description



      Name: diC59631 Date: 12/01/98


      I would like my Java applications to look as professional as any other application on my system. I love that I can ship a complete application as a jar file and that on Solaris and Windows this app can be double clicked on and run, but the standard icon that the user sees for this jar file leaves the impression that my app just isn't up to a level of professionalism that EVERY other app on the system is.

      I would like a standard way to get an icon for my file. Perhaps I could specify one or more gifs in the Manifest, that could be shown and the JRE for whatever system could parse this and present my icon to the system.
