How to make *.exe file in Java

  Asked By: Jose    Date: Aug 31    Category: Java    Views: 1764

Lets say I have a small game written in Java 1.4, now in order for me
to play that game i have to use my command line "java game".

Now what i want to do is to avoid to run java, lets say on a computer
that hava only JVM and dosnt hava SDK.

So, I would want my game to be in some kind of executable file. Is
there anyway to do it? I know in C++, compiler creates exe file and
thats it.

Please help, cuz I spend a lot of time creating small tool programs
but then cannot do anything with them since they only work on my comp
and if someone who has no experience with java he/she would nt be able
to run them.

You can also send the entire standard java  packages
with the game  if you give it to your friend on a CD.
He doesn't have to install java as long as you have
