    Default Easier way to use MS command prompt for .jar files?

    I write a java program “” and make a file “ProgName.jar”.
    Then to use it on the command line I type “java –jar ProgName.jar “(+arguments).
    Is there an easier way to use the command line like typing just “ProgName.end” where “.end” is a different ending?
    Of course a “.bat” file works, but it’s a little messy also.

    Default Re: Easier way to use MS command prompt for .jar files?

    Make a shortcut that can be clicked on to start the program. It can have the full commandline with args etc.
    A Target entry from my shorcuts:
    "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Xmx120M -cp %JAVA_RUN%\SlideShowApp.jar;DocumentViewerW.jar SlideShow.ImgIdxEditor
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.
