you can write the batchfile yourself, or start it directly in the console.

set PATH=C:\Programme\jdk1.4\bin;%PATH%
java Jxam

In the first Line you set the Path to your java jdk (That could be another path, than i have.)
In the second Line you start Jxam.

Another way is to set the Jmax directory in the the path in your system path.

Sorry, this is only the way it works with windows. Anybody else should exlain it for Linux-Systems.

1> Rename the file to JXam.jar file
2> Got to command line and then do java -jar JXam.jar

That should work.

I tried using both the options -
the first one of trying to create a bat file gave me the following error.
C:\Jayashree\SCJP>java Jxam
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Jxam
Jxam.class is there inside the zip file.

In the second option, i created a jar file, but when I tried to run the file from the command line, it gave me the option as

C:\Jayashree\SCJP>java -jar Jxam.jar
Failed to load Main-Class manifest attribute from

Please help.
