#1608 closed enhancement (fixed)

JOSM should have a better window icon

Description

Currently JOSM uses the normal Java icon. I attached an icon in .ico format that has 16x16, 32x32 and 48x48 sizes, both in 16 and 32 bit so that it can be used someday as a shortcut icon.

It seems that it's at least possible to attach an image to a jar file, as fixed in #1638. The patch uses the large logo.png which doesn't look to good when shrinked down to 16x16. I will attached a better looking icon, for a comparison screenshot look here:

IMO the current logo doesn't look too bad when shrinked down by the OS to 16x16. In contrast, if you only provide a 16x16 icon, you lose a lot of information and therefore get crappy results if the OS scales the logo up.

For Java 6 there is a solution to set multiple images (different sizes). For Java 5 not, so we will stick with the current way for some time I fear.

Replying to anonymous:

Not true. A .jar file is simply a .zip file with a different filename extension. If your archive tool can't handle .jar files directly, temporarily rename it with a .zip extension.

The JOSM icon file can be included in the .jar file. Even though Java RTE may not be able to use it, the user can extract it with WinZip, File Roller, or what-have-you and point to it so their system shell can display it in a menu or on the desktop.

Furthermore, the JOSM icon should be created as a Scalable Vector Graphics (.svg) file, so that any size icon can be quickly created as a .png, .jpg or .bmp file. Some graphical shells, such as Gnome, can use the .svg file directly.
