Make an executable jar file of the app.
See the jar documentation for how to do this.

I was playing with executable jar today, followed all the instructions, and always get an error that Java cannot find the class named in the Main-Class: tag. I found one discussion thread on the web with several people who had the same problem, but no solutions. Is this a common problem? What am I doing wrong?

Is this a common problem?

Do bears live in the woods? Yep, very common. It generally has to do with a package problem, but it could be other things as well. What is the directory structure of you jar file and what is the fully qualified name of your main class, that is like com.package.MainClass? Post that and a copy of the mainfest and maybe we can get it to work.
