Hi,

Add the ability to launch an application from a jar
via the Costello interface.

Costello appares to support running an app from a
class file only. The ability to specify a jar file
and execute would be good. e.g.,

java -jar myapp.jar

Cheers,

Brent Herbert

    Could you be more specific about what you want out of the launch?

    java -jar xxx.jar determines the main class from the jar file manifest. Is *that*
    what you're looking for?
