MAKING AN APPLICATION
Exporting The Project
Make sure that your project has no compile errors and can run successfully.
Then, go to the File menu and select Export Application.
Under Export Options, make sure that Windows and Embed Java for Windows (64-bit) are checked.
Your program is located under the Applications.windows64 folder
CRASHES / COMMON PROBLEMS
All of your images must be located in the data subfolder of your project, they cannot be loose in the main folder with your code.
This isn't enforced in the editor but matters when trying to make your program an executable.
Your image files must have the exact same case in the filename as they do in your code, including capitalization. When running in the editor this doesn't matter, but will cause your export to crash
Recommendation: Name all images with snake_case. All lowercase letters with words split by underscores.
Don't forget that all students must complete the Project Submission Form as part of each submission.
