Why do you need an exe? It will make it platform specific you know. You can start a java application from an icon without an exe.
If you just want to get it going you can create a .bat file with all the commands in it.
Or there is a JToEXE product
If you are looking to bundle everything up into a self extracting exe to put on a web page there is InstallSheild
