I'm looking into packaging my small application so i can install my app on another computer w/o having to install java on the other computer. I read up on Executable jar files and this seems to be the solution. Unfortunately all of the tutorials don't seem to work. I'll give you my circumstances and see if you guys can help me out. I have an app Transpose and it uses calls to static method called Notes that i also wrote. They are both stored in C:/J2sdk1.4.0_01/bin. How can i create an executable jar file for this program. Your help is greatly appriciated GOD Bless

Matthew,
An executable jar is a jar file that has one of the classes running automatically when the jar is called. It still requires java on the machine.
I think what you are looking for is a program that turns .jar files into .exe files. Google has some tools that do this.
