Build, test and package

(Saturday, April 16, 2016 Warning: I just migrated from Ant to Maven build system)

TikiOne Steam Cleaner is currently built with NetBeans, Maven and the latest version of Oracle JDK8.

To build the project:

  • load the project with NetBeans and a Java 8 compatible JDK (I use the latest version of NetBeans and Oracle JDK8)
  • set the working directory to the "dist2" folder. It contains additional configuration files used by base application. Also, the build output targets this directory.

You can now build and run the project.

The packaged application is in the "dist2" folder.

To bundle a JVM (version 8 or better), copy it as a "jre" subfolder in the "dist2" directory and launch the NSIS script: it will package TikiOne steam Cleaner with the provided JVM into an EXE installer based on NSIS-Unicode (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System, Unicode version: I use version 2.46-5 from Google Code).
Nota: since Google Code is shutting down, I have uploaded latest NSIS version here.

I'm working on this software since Janurary 2012. Here is the full changelog.


MIT License. In other words, you can do what you want: this project is entirely OpenSource, Free and Gratis.


Andrew Sampson is the developper of an excellent alternative based on Microsoft .NET technology. Check his repository: Codeusa/SteamCleaner.
He is also the author of the famous Borderless Gaming software: Codeusa/Borderless-Gaming.


You may think that Java is not secure. I won't blame you, but please keep in mind that if the Java plugin (which is dead now) was a giant security hole, the Java VM (that runs TikiOne Steam Cleaner) is secure and is used by many major companies to run servers (for Google, Amazon...), desktop applications (like JetBrains IDEs), TVs, IoT, Android smartphones, etc. In other words, Java is everywhere and it works fine ;-)
