i just want to know that weather the background ms-dos window when we start any application in java (by typing java "MainClassName" or by directly by doubleclicking .jar file in window explorer) can be eliminated, so that my java applicationss look
like any other WINDOWS application.

If you use javaw instead of just java you don't get the window.
>javaw mainclass

hi!
The jar file solution is perfect for your problem.put all the class files and icons and images etc(resources)in the jar file .Create a file in notepad name it Maifest.mtf
in the file specify the following:-
Main-Class: mainfile
(mainfile is the entry point of your application,or simply put the class file containing public static void main)
in the Manifest file ,include this file in your jar archive.
make a short cut on the desktop pointing to this jar file
woolah
you have yourself what you wanted
