The JarCreator (GUI) Documentation
After generating the dictionary files in the DictionaryGeneration tab, you have to create a jar file
that you will install on your Java powered device (mobile phone, smartphone, PDA...). For that, you need JarCreator.
You can find the JarCreator tab just after the BitmapFontGenerator tab. JarCreator has 3 fields you have to fill in
correctly in order for it to take you to the jar creation preferences summary window. That window will enable you to go
on to the actual jar creation process. You have to provide:
- The path to the directory named dictionary that contains the dictionary files created by DictionaryGeneration
- The path to the empty DictionaryForMIDs.jar and DictionaryForMIDs.jad (must be free of any dictionary files)
- The path to the output directory (where the created jar/jad files will be saved to)
Launching the jar creation preferences summary window
Below is a screen-shot of the jar creation preferences summary window.
Hitting the Start button launches the jar creation process. The jar/jad files
that are created are put in a directory that has the same name as the dictionary
name and are located just under the output directory that you specified.
