command:
java -jar jar-file
e.g.
java -jar app.jar
or
java -jar path/app.jar  
For that application (jFirewallsim), you want to get the .zip file instead. Unzip that, then you will find a bat file that you can use to launch the application (runGUI.bat or runCLI.bat).

Commented:
The link you provided points to the source code of the jFirewallSim. There is no class file in this archive which can be executed. You can either look for the binary version of this application or try to build it from source.
