    Default How to make an execulable file?

    I have designed a program, and I would like to focuss myself on programming real programs. And I would like to learn how to make an file executable. I have tried tutorials on the internet, but can't seen to get them work.

    At the moment I have:
    - 1 file with my code. (.java)
    - 1 file when compiled the code (.class)

    You can embedd it in an html/create an executable .jar file + tell the computer the path to it

    Or simply create an executable jar file.
    That's the java equivalent of an executable file.

    He creates a .BAT file (Windows) after I run my program.
    And when I click on that file he also executes my program.
    But when I exit TextPad (I use to write my code), the the .BAT file is gone too.

    Who creates a BAT file?
    I have no idea what you;re on about.

    Create an executable jar. That'll be one file you can double click on to execute.

    A Batch file to run it would look like that:

    @echo off
    cd "EnterTheDirectoryHere"
    java ClassName

    But it has one con:
    You can't send it to anyone per email or put it on the internet, because .bat files are forbidden in the www.

    To make it look better, you can make a shortcut to it and give it another style
