    afaik it's not possible to set an own icon on a jar file. unter windows all mime-types has it's own icon. but i don't think this is what you're looking for.

    I do not know of any existing software,
    but it would be possible to add a line the the manifest file
    and create, non-Java, program for previewing .jar files (creating file thumbnails).

    Alternatively for Windows you can create a wrapping .exe file, with the
    icon, which contains and starts the .jar-file.
    Ex animo! Hibernate
    Java, Arch Linux, C, GPL v3, Bash, Eclipse, Linux VT, GNOME 2 and many buttons on windows.

    What does the question have to do with AWT/Swing?

    it possible with other tools that wrap a jar to an exe on windows or an executable on other os. but natively jar does not support to set an icon to its file.
