    Java & dll


    Does anyone know if Java requires the use of .dll files or can everything be compiled into the .exe?

    Advantages and disadvantages?

    Thanks.

    No dlls, but java does require some/many external .class files. They're all included the jre, though, so you shouldn't have to worry about a user having them.

    If you're wanting to compile your project into a standalone .exe, here's an article that discusses that:
