How do I launch a Java applet using the command line?

I'm running Linux Mint 6 which is Ubuntu 8.10. I'm trying to launch a linux version of a program called JDownloader, but right clicking and selecting the JDownloader.jar file with Sun Java Runtime 6, doesn't seem to work. Wanted to try the command line, but don't know the correct command?. Thanks.

Hi -

It *should* work. Specifically, all you should have to do is:
a) Install Java Runtime 6 (like you did)
b) <Right-click> the .jar file, and "Open With" Java 6
c) Voila - you should be up/running
<= Unfortunately, it sounds like this is exactly what you've tried!
Here's a "Plan B" that might work:
a) From a command prompt,
b) java -Xmx512m -jar JDownloader.jar &
'Hope that helps .. PSM
