Hi All,
Could somebody help me with converting my .class file to a linux executable. Would also help if you could tell me how i could also create a win exe(.exe) from .class
Appreciate the help.

The simplest way is to download the full gcc 3.0 or higher. It contains the gcj compiler which will create a binary from either a .java or a .class file. Read the documentation for the exact flags that you will need to use for .java or .class.
There are other Java to binary compilers. 2 towers is one. Kaffe is another. Then there are a couple of others.
