    Red face Note pad source code open instead of executing java program?

    Hi Friends,

    I recently downloaded java software (JDK) from Oracle website and installed. I'm not techie, so I manage to make it usable after getting through bundles of problems.

    Now I wrote a very simple problem, that compiling the program didn't give me any error(It was fine), but while executing (with command prompt), instead of showing the message in command prompt, the whole java program was opened in notepad. I tried many things, but failed.

    Can somebody help me?

    Post the code, and the commands you used to compile and run it.
