    Talking Making my application Friend Friendly

    Hi,
    I have developed a chat application that have 2 main parts, ChatServer and ChatClient. While starting either of Server or Client I need to open a command prompt and type java ChatServer or java ChatClient as these 2 classes contain the main() method.
    What I want is to create something like an installer that will install the application(client part) on my friends computers, and they can start it just by double clicking a desktop icon.

    Pardon me if my query was a bit vague:p.. as I have no idea how to do this..:cool:

    Don't know about the "installer" part.
    If the app is in a jar file and the jre is installed on a computer, then you will be able to double click on the jar file or shortcut to start the app.

    Yeah, distribute your application as a JAR package. Word install bind you into windows platform most of the time.
