Hi June,

I have already seen one reply on this suggesting you to wrap the Java
program in a script containg the something like java my_java_program. If
it is native code (so you can run it on a machine without a Java VM, javac
will not help you) you
have to buy a special compiler for that if it is for
Windows (I have not seen any free ones for Windows yet). For Linux you
could use gcc with the option for Java code, but that is only for Linux
native code.

Best Regards
