Running JAR file on Windows
To run a JAR file on Windows, you will need to have the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on your system. You can then run the JAR file by double-clicking it or by using the
java command in the command prompt.
For example, if the JAR file is named
MyProgram.jar, you can double-click it to run it. Alternatively, you can open a command prompt, navigate to the directory where the JAR file is located, and run the following command:
java -jar MyProgram.jar
This will launch the JAR file using the
If the JAR file has a main class defined in its
MANIFEST.MF file, you can also run the JAR file by using the
java command and specifying the main class:
java -cp MyProgram.jar com.example.Main
This will run the
com.example.Main class in the JAR file.
I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
