Hi ranchers, after asserting that your code works well, how do you develop it into an application that runs on a client's machine? Thanks in advance!

Not sure what you mean by it. based on what i understand, you can do below-
a) host it on a web server and give yor clients the url to access it from a browser.
b) Write clients ( desktop/mobile ) which tak to services exposed on your server( usually a web server ).

Or if you're talking about deploying a stand-alone desktop application, like Eclipse for example, then creating an exectuable .jar file might be the way to go. To customize the user's experience and to do any other client environment preparation or admin functions the application may require, the .jar file can be included in a package that includes an executable that works on the target OS.

Hi Greg, that's exactly what I meant. Deploying a stand-alone desktop application. I've been coding for sometime now and I felt like, how exactly can this program work on another system, like installing you know? Thank you, while waiting for...

This tutorial is a good start and should answer many of your questions. Come back when you have more.

You might want to look into using Java Web Start if you don't want to get into the complexities of ensuring that your users have Java installed on their machine, and that it's the right version of Java, and that things like entries in the startup menu are made which point to your application, and so on.
