Default How to creating an exe file ?

i've written a java application and have compiled the .java file and have run the .class file successful. i need to get the programme in form that can be installed on another system to work just like any desktop application. i need some help in creating the .exe file so it can be executable on any system.

What do you mean by executable ?
.exe extension is only for windows.
There is no way you can do one binary file which runs on any system.

            I can understand what u r nedded.
Three ways for that
make a batch file to run the clas file
copy javaw to ur apllication directory,
make a shortcut to desktop for javaw,
then right ckick on shortcut edit its target to the intended class file
third the best way
make an executable jar file using jar cvf
make sure that in manifest file
java-Main Class as ur class containing main function,after the line make an entr then save the manifest file
