If you turn it into an exe file, your application will be tied up to the windows platform.
Instead make a self executing jar.

When I try to make a jar file I get the following error.

'jar' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

I found Exe4j work very well, to turn start java application as executable: http://www.ej-technologies.com/products/exe4j/overview.html

Saved me the trouble that I had with batch files or executable jar files, while still having a lot of flexibility:

- Exe4j automatically detects if the user has Java installed. If not, a the user is given the option to go to javasoft.com and download & install a vm
- Exe4j can handle multiple installed vm's. You can optionally specify what version your software needs (java 1.5, java 1.6, any version, etc.)

Have you installed the JDK or JRE? (JDK required)
Have you modified your PATH to include the java installation directory?
The jar.exe will be under JAVA_HOME/bin

If you get that sort of error message, you have most probably set your PATH incorrectly. Look at this Java™ Tutorials page, particularly the "common problems" link.
