But is Java good for writing Window desktop programs which seem to dominate the market?
The problem I have is in finding a way to double click on a Java compiled program when using Windows 8.1 operating system.
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. Is this possible with JAVA? So far I've seen no way to do this.
The only way I know to run a JAVA program is java -cp . programname
Netbeans is simply an IDE which automates a lot of processes to create your application. Whatever it does I don't think it will produce what you think. To be honest you are largely wasting your time following this route. Just accept that Java has its own system and work with that. If you want true executable applications then switch to C++ or C#.
Maybe you should go for Intelij rather than NetBeans or Eclipse!
And yeah you can develop Windows applications with java.
But I don't get you do you want to create an exe file or do want to create windows just like
chrome or some other apps do have!
If yes then you can use JavaFX or swing awt to create windows Form:thumbsup:
