Hmm, I'm not sure that'll work. The resources normally end up embedded in 
the Jar, and most OS's don't know how to execute binaries from the middle 
of a jar....

I doubt that'll work. You should either put the binary outside of the jar, 
or have a precurser step that extracts the resource out of a jar and puts 
it into a temporary file that the OS can find to launch
