I have developed a java application with several class files with dependencies on 3rd party api's which were on the class path. Now I want to deploy this application as a packaged jar file,which on double click executes the Main() method as specified in the, my question is what's the best way to package those 3rd party jar files, that the application depends on and load it into jvm when the user double clicks the deployed jar file, i.e. a few classes in the application depend on those 3rd party apis, and I dont know as to how I can integrate them both(the application and the 3rd party api jar files), when deploying as a executable jar.

Adding a classpath element to your manifest is described pretty well HERE

you need to create .jar file using some utility like WSAD.
so by using this utility the third party libs are also included in your application's jar file that you want to deploy
