java app

I have downloaded a java app fro sourceforge, but have little knowledge of java apps/installing them. The "application" was literally a compressed zip archive, and when you extract it, there is 2 folders lib\flex and lib\swt, plus within the root folder of lib are tons of .jar files. any idea where to even start to get this thing running, there is no install guides with the tool. I have got a version of java on my machine (btw this is via windows 7). any pointers? Do i put one of the java exe's on my system towards these folders or something?

perhaps the download came with instructions n how to run it?
perhaps there is a README file?

I put "there is no install guides with the tool" in my question.

cant see anything obvious. You could try and see if you can email the author.

I don't think it's a valid archive.  As you say all that is present is the /lib folder.  In a Java app that generally contains 3rd party libraries and that's exactly what this looks to have.

Everything in there looks to be just that - a standard library.  I don't see anything that looks like an actual application and if it was present it would usually not be in the /lib folder.

So I think you're looking at a piece of an app not an actual app - so I think you should just move on and look for a different tool.
