Its OS dependent, for example in Windows you can just change the icon used to diusplay *all* .jar files.

Alternatvly, youd have to pacakge it up in an exe file (for windows). So you would have an exe file with an icon assigned - this would be your program start, which would simply start the execution of the jar file for you.

You need to change the icon in Manifest/JAD file.....there should an option to add an attribute in manifest or JAD file...you have to change the name of icon-image and you have to give the class path to the image you wanted to have....

Hope it helps.
