    Exclamation Turn GUI Into Use-Able Program

    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. Here's the code (not sure if you'll need it):
    Java Code:
    import java.awt.*;
    import java.awt.event.*;
    import javax.swing.*;
    /*
     * Created by JFormDesigner on Wed Jun 15 20:34:16 EDT 2011
     */
    
    
    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>");
        	}

        		textField1.setText("");

    A main method helps: Lesson: A Closer Look at the "Hello World!" Application (The Java™ Tutorials > Getting Started)
    As does packaging your application in an executable jar
    Lesson: Packaging Programs in JAR Files (The Java™ Tutorials > Deployment)
    Assuming you are using Eclipse based upon the forum you posted in, you can just file->export the jar

    Alright, I think I needed the main method instead of what I currently have. I'll try it out.
