When executing a app on Mac OS X, it takes the the full package name (com.blah.whatever.MyClass) of the class that contains the main method and sticks that in the title bar. Not the title bar of the window that contains the application i'm running, but the title bar of the entire windowing system. Basically, it's right next to the apple. Any ideas on how you can set that to a specific title?

Try building a MAC application from your program. Start
by downloading the following document from the Apple web

Inside Mac OS X

Java Development on Mac OS X

Java 2 Platform, Standar Edition Version 1.3.1

This document gives detailed information on how to develop
a Java program for the Mac including how to build a .app
from your java application. This is done using the MRJAppBuilder.
The above document has excellent documentation on how to
use this tool.
I have not been able to find MRJAppBuilder on my machine.
However, I have found a different application called
Jar Bundler in the following path:

Mac HD:Developer:Applications.

Start up this app and you will find much of the same fields
the above document references for MRJAppBuilder. The field
you are looking for is on the Properties tab. Set
the value of "Bundle Name" field. Overall this is a very
painless & quick process.

Hope this helps.
