1. Which operation system are we talking about?
2. If you made an executable jar file and the mentioned behavior still exists something is not as it should be. In your case your rar packer might be the problem.
3. First link I found with google

Please correct my English.

First, jar files aren't RAR files, they're ZIP files -- not that it matters, really.

Just use your desktop (i.e., Windows) to associate the application "javaw" (javaw.exe) with files of type *.jar; then you can double-click on a jar file to execute it.
