Hello,

I'm the admin of DocFetcher, a desktop-search app written in Java, which is hosted on SourceForge.net as well. Currently, we have a portable version which is capable of running on both Windows and Linux, provided that a Java Runtime is installed. On Windows, the program is launched with an Exe, on Linux with a shell script.

We'd like to make this portable version Portable Apps compatible. However, after having skimmed your docs, I have the impression that Portable Apps are generally Windows-only. Is this correct? And if so, are there any plans to support programs that run on multiple platforms, especially Java programs?

Best regards

    Apologies for the slow response, but we don't monitor these trackers (I'm disabling them now so we don't have future requests go unnoticed). We may support Mac and Linux at a future date, but most computers people will encounter while moving about will be Windows (library, net cafe, hotel business center, etc).
