desktop shortcut for a terminal prompt

to open an application which i have just written in java, i have to write a very long prompt in a terminal (java -jar ~/manal/ -channels 1 -prompts prompts.txt) - i'm using fedora 2

Is there a way I can add a shortcut icon on the desktop that would open this same application (without me having to open a terminal and typing the prompt each time i want to open this application)?

Yes, I beleive all you have to do is right-click the desktop, and create a "link
to application" and on the command field (which is in the third tab) you can
type in the entire command. On the first tab you will title the icon something, and
then click on the icon and find an appropriate icon symbol you would like
to make for it.

Should be that easy.
