When you’re going to start your local Bukkit server you will need to open up the command prompt, change directory to where your Minecraft server is located and then run a Java command with a few arguments.

In this short article I’ll show you two great examples on how to make this easy file, it does not require more than two lines of code. To make a new batch file you simply open up notepad and save the file as name.bat and it will be a batch executable.
