I'm developing on MacOSX and using Project Builder I can create a double-clickable MacOSX application from my jar files. But I don't know how to create a Windows application. I know InstallAnywhere would do what I want but for now it is beyond my budget. Where should I go?

For Windows you can make the jar itself double-clickable by providing the Main-Class attribute in the manifest file. I think this should work on other platforms, too.
