Have you looked into making executable jars? This would be preferrable to making an exe, as the jar file is still OS independant.

thank you, Tad. i just looked into executable jar, one more question: the .java file requires some additional external libraries in .jar. May i know how to include the external libraries in the executable jar and set the classpath for the client before executing the main application?

Seriously? That's what you're going with? I prefer this tiny ad:
