I have created a jar file. I want to give a customized icon to this jar instead of the default icon that is there.
Please let me know how we can do this ..

JAR files do not have icons. The icon is given to it by Windows solely based on the fact that the extension is .jar, and there is a file association for .jar with that icon defined.
The best you can do without using Launch4J or similar tools to turn the JAR file into an EXE file is use a Windows shortcut. You can give these any icon you want.
