Howdy ranchers,

Well I was missing for quite a few days! Resuming back!!
I have developed an application and have built it and now I can run the application with the Jar file. Is there a way to change the Jar file and add some thumbnail picture instead???

You can change the icon for JAR files through the file type's icon, but that will reflect all icons. You can create a shortcut (.lnk file for Windows) and give it its own icon though.
