Java: why is eclipse application a .exe?

Hello Experts,

Why is eclipse application a .exe instead of .jar?

can you make a java application (.jar) be a .exe?
if that makes any sense...

Thanks,

Sounds like you have two completely different questions here.

Eclipse isn't a jar because it isn't a compressed java file.

For your second question, here's a link for an informative article:
