    I would use a proper IDE to be honest, using notepad just causes you grief which you dont really need.

    Try Eclipse.org home

    Jimmy, I would go for Eclipse any day, its what I use every day at the moment as well. If you are running on a 64 bit windows machine you might want to have a look at the new Eclipse Helios builds with 64 bit support.

    See Eclipse Project

    thanks and i took your advice eclipse is a lot better than what i was using but for some reason it wont run i mean im using a book too that i got from a teacher that used to teach java but for i type the code perfect and it still doesnt work because it cant find the main class in it here's the code

    class java {
    //
    public static void main(String args[]) {
    int var1; //
    int var2; //

    var1 = 1024; //
    System.out.println("var1 contain " + var1);
    var2 = var1 / 2;
    System.out.print("var2 contains var1 / 2; ");

    System.out.println("var2 ");
    }
    }

    and once again this is out of the book i am using
