Hi guys

Im new to programming & wonder if you could please help me!

Im pretty sure i have installed jdk1.6.0_02 correctly & have set the correct path variables. I have written & saved my source code & am trying to compile it using javac. When i try to open javac, the window appears for a split second before closing by itself... i cant get it to stay open! But im not having he same issues with jrunscript, the window stays open & awaits commands (although obviously i have nothing compiled & therefore its of no use!)

Could someone please let me know what it is that ive done wrong?!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Today many people use an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) to develop Java applications. IDEs have features that make a developer's life easier in writing / maintaining code bases, e.g. syntax colouring, project-based management etc.

Examples of IDE includes NetBeans, Eclipse and IntelliJ IDEA. Give them a try.

javac is a command line application for compiling java source code into java bytecode. You want to start with the basic Java tutorials:
