Creating Shortcuts through Java Installer

I know how to create a Java Installer, but one of the things that is stumping me is how to have that Installer create the desktop and application menu shortcuts.
In Linux, under Gnome, I know you can create a .lnk file that will be stored in a hidden directory in the user's home directory, but I'm at a loss when it comes to the application menu.
In addition, I haven't got a clue as to how to do this on a Windows machine.
Has anybody come across a solution for this?
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
