Hi,
I have finished developing my java application using netbeans. Now I want to give it to others. How can I change it so that user can directly install and run my application without having to run it from IDE or command line.

Thank you

Hi!

You can distribute your Java application to clients as JAR archive. Details on how to create executable JAR using NetBeans IDE can be found here. However remember that users will need to install Java JRE in order to run your app.

There are a number of installer generators for Java programs. Some of them can even automatically install a JRE if the user doesn't yet have it installed.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
