Just set the jar file into your classpath and you can use any class in it

You may also make the jar file "executable" that mean you can define one class which should be started automatically if you double click the jar file in windows explorer. A good tutorial how to do is here:

You can also place it in your Java extensions directory. That way, you don't have to bother about the classpath
