I have written a program to be run by a person who does not know java.The program also needs to be connected to a database. I need to convert the program into something that person can just clik on and use it (similar to an exe file). How do I do it. Thank you very much.

Here's a guide where you can learn how to create a executable file or jar file.
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/jar/basics/build.html
If you want to create an installer for java go to www.zerog.com and download InstallAnywhere.
In the database process however we can integrate the database but after the installation we still need to configure the database to the microsft odbc system under control panel.
