I would have a java program that is to be run by some non technical users. I want to create a short cut to that program on the desktop so that when the user clicks on it the program is executed. I also want the output/errors to be redirected to a directory.

the java program is in c:\javaproject\HelloWorld.java
the log is in c:\temp\java.log.

Why not create a batch file
Open notepad
Type (without quotes)
"java HelloWorld >> c:\temp\java.log"

then save it as HelloWorld.bat

Now doublicking on it should save the output to the temp folder

Note: java Helloword is how I am assuming you run the program using the command line, if not then just replace it with what you use.
Hope I could help
