Double-clicking .jar files?
Hey guys, I've been programming for a while, but I never made executables... just ran it from the compiler. Now, however, I really want to have an icon for one of my programs that would be conveniently located and clickable. So, I made a jar file, both in Eclipse and BlueJ. When I run this file in command line, it works fine (with "java -jar ..."). In case of Eclipse, this worked with both "jar" and "Executable jar" options. However, when I double click the icon, nothing happens. First I was getting "can't find main class" error, but that was an easy fix with the manifest file. But now, nothing seems to happen at all. Could this be because the program is supposed to run in the command line or whatever the compiler offers and there is nothing to force the computer to open one of those windows? Please help, this is very frustrating )))
