Tools for Developers of Commercial Java Applications
This section provides articles about the tools available for makers of commercial Java
applications. The articles do not focus on development frameworks or libraries, but rather on the
less "sexy" tools that are nonetheless necessary to release, distribute, and protect your
commercial Java application.
The following articles discuss four types of tools:
Application Installers and
Automatic Updaters are mainly
used for Java desktop applications, while
Licensing / Piracy Protection
and Obfuscators are tools
valuable to all types of commercial Java applications including desktop applications, server-side
applications, and commercial component libraries.
