Java applications on Mac Catalina

4264950Jun 4 2020

Hi all

I have created a java desktop application that I sell from my web page It is run on Java SE 1.8 using the java Swing library and was developed using Netbeans. For many years I have created Windows and Mac installers using Advanced Installer and both Windows and Mac users have been able to use my program. The issue I have now is that the application will not run on Mac Catalina. I understand that the program needs to get notarized by Apple on xcode. When researching, there is only a minimal amount of information out there.

Can I create the app as I have done using NetBeans and Advanced Installer and then use xcode to submit the app for notarization. Or is there a better option for a java app?

Any advice would be most appreciated.
