Hi Satish,
To run the jar file, you need to give the following comand on command prompt
java- jar NewKeyword.jar
Apart from this, after having a manifest file for main class, as U have already given, U must be able to run the application by double-clicking on it( jar file) in the windows-explorer. Or else give me your code and I will run it for U
Cheers :-)

Hey Nk,
Im sorry to say that i made a mistake in my posting...
its the same which u've mentioned...
java -jar KeywordSearch.jar
and im happy to say that i found the prob by myself...
the prob was with the manifest file in which i didn't give a
carriage return...now its working fine...thanx for responding
