Has anyone created an executable (.exe) files from your project so that you can directly run it from an icon instead of launching through eclipse?

Right-click on the project itself and click export then a new dialog box will appear. Select the Java folder and click on the Runnable Jar File. Finally, a new dialog box will appear. Now on the Launch Configuration, select the name of the main Java Class where your main method is and on the Export Destination, point to the location where you want to save the Jar file. After that click Finish.
