I'd like to create a program that has an icon I can put on my Windows desktop and click on it to run the program.


Ok.

Is this possible with JAVA?


I doubt it.

Mainly because of the way windows locks down installing anything on windows. But easy enough to try.
1. Create java app
2. Have it create folder in "Program Files"
3. Have it create a shortcut and put it into desktop folder. The shortcut is just a simple file and you do not even need to create one, just copy one from somewhere else.
4. Run it as ADMIN (very important.)

If that works then yes. If not then you would probably need to do some JNI work which isn't really Java.

The only way I know to run a JAVA program is java -cp . programname


You can package a java jar such that it is 'clickable'.

HOWEVER, to do any of the above java must already be on the windows box. At least at one point java was coming with windows but I am not sure about that any more. Installing java itself cannot be done within java (chicken and egg.)
