How to JAR a RuneScape client (317)

In this beginner tutorial RuneLocus¬†will be showing you how to JAR your Runescape private server client. If you don’t know already what jaring your client does, then you will do after reading this tutorial, plus you will also know how to do so yourself!

So are you wondering how when you download a server client to play that you are given simple one file which you open and it runs the client? Well basically this is what we are doing now, we are going to take all the Java class files from your clients folder and pack them into one executable JAR file. You will then be able to open the file and it will automatically run the client, instead of people having to download all the client files and running it from a batch file.

To JAR your client, simple do the following steps:

1. Firstly we need to download the tool to be able to do this, which is a little program called JARMaker. Click here to download it: JARMaker Download

2. Open up the folder called “JARMaker”, inside this folder there will be a .JAR file called “JARMaker”, open it up.

3. Now that we have JAR Maker opened we want to fill in the correct information into the required fields. So firstly we want to change the output file name and destination. So go ahead and re-name application.jar to whatever you want it to be named, I am simple going to name mine Client.jar. And for the output file this is where the jar file will be created, so for this I will just put it in a folder in my documents.

After the above you should have these two fields complete.

4. After filling out the output information, we want to load the client folder. So find it in the directory viewer and click ok.

5. Now the last part that we need to fill in is the Manifest Template, the only part which needs to be filled in within this section is the Main-Class however. So go ahead and put in your main class of the client, which is normally just ‘Client’ and then hit set manifest.
