Details about Major Features

JExpress was the first commercially available installer that supported Sun's Swing interface. The major advantage of Swing to software deployers is that it insures your installation programs have a consistent look and feel across platforms.

JExpress 3.1 and later supports JFC/Swing 1.1, JFC/Swing 1.2, or later. This means that you must have Swing 1.1, 1.1.1, 1.2, or 1.3 with the new naming conventions, Java 2.0 (also called 1.2, 1.3, 1.4) or Java 5 (also called 1.5) installed on your system to use JExpress and its installers.

If your Java apps use the older naming conventions for Swing (i.e., com.sun.java.swing), we strongly recommend that you use WoodenChair's package renamer tool to rename the classes and use the newer version of Swing. If you prefer to use the older Swing, then you will need to include the older version of swingall.jar in the file list on the "Files" panel.
