Hi, I've finished coding my program and now i want to compile it. It's the first time I'm actually compiling a program since I use JCreator to code and test my programs. But this time I wanted to make it an acutal program by compiling it. I have no idea about compiling. So I thought I could ask you guys for some help. How can I compile my program? What am I supposed to get after i compile it? Am I going to be able to run it by simply double clicking? Thanks in advance.

Compiling your code
# javac

Running your code
# java yourClassName

If you want to double click to run your code you have to create a jar file

#jar cf jar-file input-file(s)
