This tutorial explains JAR files and how to create an executable JAR: Packaging Programs in JAR Files.

If you want a Windows executable for some reason (note, that will make your program not useful on anything else than Windows), have a look at Launch4J, which you can use to wrap JAR files in Window exe's.

You could use IzPack to create an installer for your Java application.

This might also be interesting: One-JAR.
