    Take a look at the Hello World part of the tutorial:
    "Hello World!" for Microsoft Windows (The Java™ Tutorials > Getting Started > The "Hello World!" Application)

    You need the JRE to be able to execute a java class.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    So, how do I make .apk or .jar of the application after compilation?

    That's usually done by the IDE.
    I use the jar command to build my jar files. See the jar section of the java SE doc:
    Java Platform Standard Edition 7 Documentation
