How can I put a shortcut on desktop in order to run my application(6 classes)when I click it?

Hi Glen,

Two ways I can think to do this.

1) create an executable jar file of the application and then put that on the desktop

2) create a batch file (assuming windows) with the relevant java command to run your application in it and put that on the desktop

That's no problem though. I'm assume the 6 classes mentioned form 1 application, not 6 separate ones? Just call java on the main class in the batch file. Side-effect is that you are left with a command window open while the program is running.

right click the class file(the one with main()) - select sendto/desktop/create shortcut
right click the shortcut - select properties
look for 'Target'
eg in Target it may be
"C:\Documents and Settings\Java\Testing.class"

change this to
javaw -classpath "C:\Documents and Settings\Java" Testing

(note the 'space' before and after -classpath and before Testing)
(windows will add the extra stuff it needs)
