Questions about porting a Java application

Hi all,

I have a Java application that I want to port and I have read the better
part of [1]. The application that I want to port unfortunately has a
specific structure that does NOT make it possible to adhere to the
practices. What is the general thing to do in such a case?

As far as I can tell from the Win32 starter script for the application it
insists on an application
directory with the following structure

  INSTALL-DIR
	|
	+---- bin
	|
	+---- doc
	|
	+---- lib

Any advice about this?

Kind regards,
