If you want a "installable" version, you will need a "install tool"  like InstallAnywhere, or any other. It's easy to do a install, it's like a tutorial.

If you want to "deploy" your java code, in a way the user can use it, then I recomend you make a jar file with your classes, and deploy with JRE libs too.

I recomend you to know a little of the manifest file in http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/jar/basics/manifest.html, it can determine a main class for your application, then you say something like java -jar myapplication.jar, and you main class is called. See the jar application too, it's like a file zipper.
