I found this on http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/guide/jar/jarGuide.html

"On Microsoft Windows systems, the Java 2 Runtime Environment's 
installation program will register a default association for Jar files 
so that double-clicking a Jar file on the desktop will automatically run 
it with javaw -jar. Dependent extensions bundled with the application 
will also be loaded automatically. This feature makes the end-user 
runtime environment easier to use on Microsoft Windows systems"

On Win2k, I can/tried to register the default association for the jar 
(derbynet.jar) file with javaw.exe, but not sure how to give the 
argument -jar..  anyone know ?
