Hello, I am new to Java. I want to know how to create an window exe from a Jar file. I have read several posts on internet about jsmooth. I need some easy instructions on how to create a window exe (console and window form) from a jar file. Also, I need instructions on how to launch the exe after creating it. Any information would be appreciated.

Java classes and archives are finely used by the JVM as they are.

There must be serious reasons to want to make an exe.

Your question is sort of like saying "How can I hamstring my .jar files so that they ONLY run on windows machines?". WHY would you want to do that? Why would you want to restrict/limit where you code can run?

If you tell us the problem you are trying to solve we can probably give you better advice.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
