    You lost me at "waiting...". I'm just picturing you standing there, tapping your foot in impatience. Not a good image to convey.

    What have you tried? What did google tell you? I know this question has been asked before, what did you find while searching?

    The icon that gets displayed for an executable is pulled directly from the executable header. The executable for a jar file is the 'jar' exectuable rather than the jar file itself. Most OSs have some kind of mechanism in place to allow the icon to be customized by an installer, but there's no way to do it via a manifest entry, which would be ideal

    Your options are to use an installer that set's the icon (or do it manually), or use/write a native launch utility that has the icon you want. One such utility (I've never personally used it) is JSmooth.
