Java Deployment: Creation and Execution of Java JAR File

Introduction to Java deployment:

We learned more about Java Swing in our previous tutorial, in this tutorial, we will learn how to deploy a java project.

Once coding has been completed, you have to wrap all the files as a JAR file and that jar file can be deployed in any required machine. Check our interesting Java training series.

Here is a Video tutorial on Java Deployment:

To Create a Java JAR file

You can run the jar file from the command prompt/ terminal.

First, you need to go to the directory in which you have the jar file from the terminal/command prompt.

Then, type the below command and hit enter,

java –cp JarName mainclass_with_packagename
