Ok. I have just written a program but every time i want to run one i have to do it through command prompt by typing all the like " java whatever" Is there some way i can make a java file where all i have to do is double click it and it runs? I mean like turn a Java file into an exe file. I tried jars but they dont double click

i read the page, but it does not explain how to run a jar file from outside of the command line. If i want to give a program to afriend but he doesnt have the compiler(so he doesnt have the jar flag) how would i do it?
