Java is a VM, which means .class code runs on this and only
Java machine , real or virtual.

So the question is : what is an exe ?
if an exe is a doubleclickable icon, then just see Java Web Start
if not: it can be a command for windows or a script for unix ... in
which case you have to write down the instructions to launch the class
in the JVM.
There is e Just in time compiler , but I don't use it...

As a matter of fact, I was having the same problem. I had to find an easy way of installing and running my Java-Applications under Windows. SUN should put some more work on this subject. Anyway, I was writing my own installer in C++ for my JAVA-Applications. But then I found a more convenient way. The answer is InstallAnywhere by Zero G:
If you register, then you can use freely a version of this application. It allows you to bundle any version of JVM or JRE you want with your program. It produces automatically an EXE file out of your CLASS file, and also icons to doubleclick on.
