I have a problem on creating an executable jar file that connects to the database. It runs ok when executed within the NetBeans IDE but it doesn't connect to the database when i created a desktop shortcut. Can anyone help me?

It sounds like a classpath issue. You have to make sure any database drivers are available to the JAR file using the classpath of the current JRE.
Do you have a stack trace of the error, or the error message? - perhaps we could see what is missing.
