    Hi :)

    There is very good and detailed article on this topic here:

    "Convert Java to EXE - Why, When, When Not and How"
    (sorry cannot post link yet, just paste this in google)

    It is NOT simple issue because use have to take care about
    clients Java environment.

    If this is very important thing for you
    i suggest that you:

    1. take a client PC with fresh installed OS and no Java on it
    2. Go step by step through problem description in link I posted.
    Find a problem-solution type that fits your situation.
    3. Experiment with it

    Always have in mind that users like to have most simple solution
    like just double-click on your application to run it.

    regards :)
