    I wrote standalone Java program for my daughter to address a complicated personal scheduling problem. I developed it on Ubuntu linux and she has been running it on a Windows platform. Now, due to a job change, she needs to run it on a Mac. I'm hoping I've written it generically enough that it will execute successfully there, but I do not own a Mac nor do I know hardly anything about the environment. I'm hoping that it would be possible to install the two required Jar files in some directory and create the OS X equivalent of an Ubuntu launcher/Windows shortcut to start execution. The application uses Swing for graphics and does write one small file for saving some information. Does this seem possible, or just nonsense to consider without a Mac and Mac development tools and skills?

    Thanks
