In reality, in Windows, it is more something like:

1. For a windows executable it must be in the path to be executed, for a jar file it must be in the ext dir
Is this far more complex than a traditional Java jar file? You better believe it ;-)

Actually no. There are two critical differences:

1. Once the Windows executable is properly configured, you don't have to do it again. You have to rearrange the JAR file every time you change directories.

2. There aren't multiple paths to deal with. There are multiple classpaths and jre/lib/ext directories to deal with.

Well, I grew up with Windows 3.0, MS DOS before that etc, so I am lucky to understand why it is so and how to change these settings. But many aren't. I am not saying that things in Java world are easy, but I consider it far from reality to say things are easy in Windows (or Unix) environments.

Actually Unix is pretty good. I believe on my Mac I just type "xsltproc" and I'm done. Possibly at some point I had to do "sudo fink install libxslt" but I don't think I even had to do that. Linux would probably use apt-get instead. Otherwise it's much the same.
