I know its based on this:      
Usage: java [-options] class [args...]
           (to execute a class)
   or  java [-options] -jar jarfile [args...]
           (to execute a jar file)

The same way you do in in Windows. The only difference is that the classpath separator is : and not ; if you want to set a classpath
java javaTest.Test

java -cp JavaFolder/TestJava.JAR javaTest.Test

assuming JavaFolder/TestJava.JAR is the complete path!

at the prompt, type:

> java -jar MyProgram.jar

as simplest example.
