there is a company called Jove that makes a program that will turn your .jar file into an excecutable. It works surprisingly well, although the resulting code is no faster than java.

You can also take advantage of executable jars introduced in Java2. You can refer to tech tips archive on www.javasoft.com & refer to tip regarding executable jars.
I hope it work & also it is platform independent.
Other ways to convert a file into .exe is to download various utilities from www.download.com but i cant say anything regarding performance.
