thank you very much for your reply.
but forgive me i don't think whether you have understood my question.
i mean, i have the source and class file in one folder.
and i want to make the following out of it:
1) a .deb for linux
2) a .exe for win
3) a .jar (which i think should work in both)
thanks a lot.
