    Default Packing up a into an executable.


    I have two classes, on main and one GUI, and i want them to execute as one jar with everything in it.
    I can normally do this with one class but how do i do this with two classes that need each other?
    Could not find any videos on it so thought that i would ask here first.

    How do i do this? Thanks.

    Default Re: Packing up a into an executable.

    IDEs normally have a way to package your program into a jar file.
    If you are not using an IDE, the jar command can be used to create a jar file that contains all your classes and resources.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
