Sure., Just run the program as "java ClassName arg1 arg2 ...", where ClassName is the name of the main class, and arg1, etc, are the command-line arguments to the program. There are, of course, class path issues, etc, but this is the basic idea.

You can also launch a jar file, provided it has a manifest that points to the class where the main method is:
java -jar myJarToLaunch
