Packaging application runnable jar?

AndyC1000 asked

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.
