Do you mean as in HelloWorld.exe? You don't without some expensive software. The ideal way to execute a java class or set of classes is using JAR files. On a Windows system you can execute a JAR file by double clicking on the file. Or you can write a batch file/shell script that executes the JAR file or Class file is you prefer. Here is a link on how to create JAR files. Good luck!!

How do you go about the shell-script thing that you mentioned, and also how do you add an icon to it so you can click on the desktop and it will execute.
