LaunchAnywhere

A LaunchAnywhere executable, or LAX, is a file used to launch a Java application on any LaunchAnywhere-compatible platform (all Windows, UNIX platforms, and Mac OS X). LaunchAnywhere enables end-users to double-click on an icon (Windows or Mac OS X) or type a single command (UNIX) to start a Java application. The LAX is also in charge of configuring the Java application environment by setting the classpath; redirecting standard out and standard error; passing in system properties, environment variables, and command-line parameters; and many other options.

The launcher looks at a configuration file, <MyLauncherName>.lax, to determine how the launcher runs. This lax file is created during the installation and is placed in the same location as the launcher.
