I have completed an application and build it. i wish to change the executable jar icon on my desktop to something else that will be unique with my application. all i have seen from my search is how to change all executable jar file from control panel but that is not what i want. I will be elated if given a way out of this nightmare

Moved to Java, as this isn't a Java EE question. You can't change the icon of the JAR. Java programs with their own icons are EXEs or have EXEs to launch them. You might look at tools to package your JAR into an EXE.
