I used JFormDesigner to create a GUI, and now I need to find out how I can export it so that it's a use-able program with just one click. Here's the code (not sure if you'll need it):

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;

public class NPCSpawn extends JFrame {
    	public NPCSpawn() {
    		initComponents();
    	}

    	private void button1ActionPerformed(ActionEvent e) { //Generate
    		String tf1 = textField1.getText();
    		String tf2 = textField2.getText();
    		String tf3 = textField3.getText();
    		String tf4 = textField4.getText();
    		String tf5 = textField5.getText();
    		String tf6 = textField6.getText();
    		String tf7 = textField7.getText();
    		String tf8 = textField8.getText();
    		String tf9 = textField9.getText();
    		String tf10 = textField10.getText();
    		String tf11 = textField11.getText();
    		String tf12 = textField12.getText();
    		
    		textArea1.setText("<npcSpawn>" + " <!--" + tf2 + "-->" + "\n\t<npcId>" + tf1 + "</npcId>" + "\n\t<walkingType>" + tf3 + "</walkingType>" + "\n\t<spawnLocation>" + "\n\t\t<x>" + tf4 + "</x>" + "\n\t\t<y>" + tf5 + "</y>" + "\n\t\t<z>" + tf6 + "</z>" + "\n\t</spawnLocation>" + "\n\t<minLocation>" + "\n\t\t<x>" + tf7 + "</x>" + "\n\t\t<y>" + tf8 + "</y>" + "\n\t\t<z>" + tf9 + "</z>\n\t</minLocation>" + "\n\t<maxLocation>" + "\n\t\t<x>" + tf10 + "</x>" + "\n\t\t<y>" + tf11 + "</y>" + "\n\t\t<z>" + tf12 + "</z>" + "\n\t</maxLocation>" + "\n</npcSpawn>");

I don't test or run you code, just there I missed

public static void main(String[] args) {
  NPCSpawn main = new NPCSpawn();

}
