    Default Launch Error Editor does not contain main type

    Hello,
    I have just downloaded Eclipse and have entered the first "hello world" program from a Java Textbook that I am using
    here is the code from the text that I entered on to Eclipse:

    public class HelloTester
    {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    // display a greeting in the console window

    System.out.println("Hello, World!");
    }
    }


    When I press the 'run' button on the Eclipse toolbar, this error message pops up:

    Launch Error
    Editor does not contain a main type

    Please provide advice on how to solve this problem.
    Thanks
    AJ

    Looks good to me.

    Delete everything (or start a new project) and try again.
