    i created a jar file by using the command jar cf "jar-filename" "java-Filename". It creates the jar file but I am unable to execute it.

    What is in the manifest file? What error messages do you get? See post#5

    Add some println statements to the code that will print out messages as it executes. Then execute it and see what messages are printed. That will tell you where code is executing and where it has stopped executing.
    If a message is printed the statement was executed. If not printed, it was not executed.

    @viper_pranish, please don't hijack someone else's thread. While the problem is the same as the original post, the actual cause could be quite different then the original posters problem. So we ask that in the future you please start your own thread on the issue. I have moved your post to its own thread

    Norm's post above referring to post #5 refers to this thread:
    can some one make me a runable jar file?
