Generally, you simply have to specify the jar's location in the classpath variable on the new system or pass the location to the application at start up. i.e. (for windows) set CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;c:\lib\newtest.jar This assumes that you put the jar in a folder called c:\lib. i.e. (windows). java -classpath=%CLASSPATH%;c:\lib\newtest.jar It is also common to create set-up scripts, etc that will do this automatically (i.e. .bat files) Hope this helps.
