I have a simple screen developed using Frames. I want to place an icon on the desktop so that I can just click on it and the screen appears. Can someone take me through on how I can do this. Please help.

If you are on windows, then create a batch file (start-my-app.bat, or whatever) that starts your program and create a shortcut to that batch file. The batch file would look like: java -cp "..." mypkg.MyApp -parms Your PATH environment variable should contain the directory where Java is installed. You can override/augment the classpath if necessary. The "mypkg.MyApp" will be the full classname of your application (main) class. And the "-parms" represent any parameters that get passed to your class. In other words, it should look just like whatever you type on the command line to get your class running. It's a similar process on Linux/Unix.
