    Default JAVAC

    Hi all - I am new to Java and I have just been playing around with my first program... I got Javac to work - but when I ask it to run the .java file it thinks about it for a couple of seconds and then returns nothing! Any ideas?

    My Prog:

    public class MyProgram {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    System.out.println("Rome wasn't burned in a day!");
    }
    }

    You're running the compiler, which creates a .class file. You have to run the .class file.

    Returning nothing is good. That means it did not find any errors. If there were errors in the source file they would have been printed out.

    You aren't doing what the link I posted for you tells you to do.

    The compiler and the JRE are two different things. One compiles .java files into .class files, the other runs .class files. The link I gave you explains how to use both.
