No... if you make it an .exe it won't run on any platform - just windows.

There *are* ways to compile Java programs into executable files, but none of them produce platform independent executables. (You could produce an executable for each platform, though...)

I've used InstallAnywhere in the past to create stand-alone Java applications. You can use the program to create custom Installers for Java applications, such as specifying shortcuts, agreements, directories, etc... And it will allow you to create a stand-alone executable for your target platform. (Windows, Unix, etc...)
