Who said you had to double-click that JAR file?

If it's what I think it is, it's just the JAR file containing the JDBC driver. Just put a copy of it in your classpath and you're done.

Or you could post a link to the instructions which said to double-click the JAR file, so we could have some idea of the context for your question.
I agree. Here's the link:
