Hello everyone,

I am new to Java but know lot about other programming languages and experienced game developer. As Java is platform independent, we cannot compile it to .exe format and that's where my problem is. Suppose I have created a .java file and compiled it to .class file, then the users cannot run it. What I need to do to make the users run my program by simply double clicking a file?

Another question, is there any special software required for the end user to use my program compiled with java or java applet?

Package it as a jarfile.

See this and this. As always the Tutorials nearly always help, even with this.
