There are many ways to do this (and this topic gets asked often enough). I find the best solution is to make an excecutable JAR for your code. Google is full of solutions for how to do this.

Excutable JAR will NOT help you if your output is text based, means DOS prompt/whatever will NOT show up.

Executable JAR is preffered for GUI stuff. You can use batch file.

In my opinion, it seems pointless to make a text-based app "double-clickable" anyways. Perhaps I'm a little biased towards the command-line, when it seems the most appropriate tool, at least.
