What are the applications of java? I mean how is it used to develop (non command line) programs? Aside from android programming

I understand that java is applicable in developing android programs, but how else is java used? I have been doing command line programming and some little GUi for the past one year, yet no textbook has ever mentioned how to package a java program into an application that can be run on a computer, say windows. How is it done? Just a brief summary is all I need.

Minecraft is written in Java. there are business applications too. web applications (jsp). and many more. you compile your GUI applications the same way as the console applications. just make sure that you include all necessary packages if you used external ones. you'd know if you did when you had to download them ;)
