running/executing foo.jar

from gnome, double-clicking on a .jar file I made just opens it.  the
file's being treated like a .zip file, apparently, and isn't being
executed.  the file does have a nice jar-icon with a bean in it,
though.  the following works:

[thufir at localhost bin]$ java -jar HelloWorldSwing.jar

what's required to make the jar run with a double-click, please?
