Hello, folks!

I want to create a windows-like executable file for my java project. i have heard that you can to do that using shell programming but i am a complete beginner on
that subject. My question is if there is anyone here that can help me solve my problem by providing me a link to an article on the subject in question or let me
know if there is a good software out there which you can download and bundle files in a java project into a windows executable type file?
Any tip or hint would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance!

This question comes up frequently. I searched and found a few threads, which I haven't re-read, so I don't know whether they are helpful: 1 2 3 4 5, and there are others.

Great! I am a little wiser already i am using netbeans 6.7.1 it is king but it is a little bit sad that it doesnt provide a function for
exporting the java project files into a exe pack like it does in the jarish way. Thanks!

That's because jars are the Java standard.

And despite what Microsoft would have you believe, not everyone uses Windows.
