Deploying SWT Application on MacOSX Sierra [message #1753383] Sun, 05 February 2017 13:23

I wrote an SWT/JFace application 10 years ago that I would like to have working again with the latest MacOSX Sierra. I've fixed the application problems that prevented it from running within my Neon environment, but now I need to get it to deploy as a standalone application.

Back when I originally created the standalone application, I copied an existing example standalone SWT application, fixed up its plist, and replaced its innards with my JAR and other resources.

Is that still the preferred method of creating a standalone SWT/JFace application?

I found this link at

It even included an example application that I thought I could use. Unfortunately, this application doesn't launch on my brand new Sierra installation. The Console log shows only this message after I attempt to launch it:[1] (org.eclipse.swt.swthello.4396[77418]): Service exited with abnormal code: 1

I'm running Java 1.8.0_121.

Any advice?
