Packaging application runnable jar?

Dear all,

I've completed stage 1 of an application using Eclipse.  At this stage no user interface just a number of arguments in the run configuration.  Can I create a runnable jar considering users will need to change the arguments? Or should I create a batch file to run from command line?

I've tried to export a runnable jar however I get export errors and compile warnings for java classes that are in a different package to the main.  As well as this message - Class files on classpath not found or accessible for a class file.

Tried creating a batch file to run the app from the command line, I haven't created one before.

I watched the you tube video earlier when I first tried to export the runnable jar there are export errors and compile warnings for java classes that are in a different package to the main.

I've compiled the code from the command line and there are errors that the packages don't exist.  Even though they do.

In case you didn't get the message: CEHJ wants you to post the errors you get.

The message was "Exported with compile warnings somepackage/" I assumed it was an error.
Yes, you don't export to jar before the application even compiles ;)
