i have created an application in java swing. now i know that java is platform independent. my application is running on windows platform and linux too. now i want to run it on macintosh machine. is simply this application run on this m/c or have to install jre on mac as in windows. if so then wher will i get the jre for mac m/c. or is there any other tool for mac which will run a executable jar file or a class file on it.

MRJAppBuilder is the tool you need to make a double clickable application from a JAR.
Without it you can still launch a jar from Terminal (in OS X) like you do on any other platforms: see man jar.
Note that on the Mac, the jre/lib/ext folder is in /Library/Java/Extensions : where to put 3rd party jars you depend on if any.
