hi there,
Please pardon me if this question is out of this league,but i need some information about the following,so i thought of posting it here and see if somebody could help me out..
actually i have a couple of java source(and class files ofcourse)files and i was wondering if any of you folks could tell me how to make a standalone application(an executable) from these source files that i can run on any computer without having to install java in that computer.the main page(the front screen of the application) is a java frame,and i am calling various other java files(frames again) from this frame.I would really appreciate the help.
thanks in advance

Well, this definitely isn't a Servlets question. Your best bet is probably to use our search utility (see upper right corner of screen) to look for the word "executable" in someplace like Java in General - Intermediate. The topic has come up many times in the past.
