Apart from your posting on the wrong forum . . .

When you run an app from Eclipse (right-click->Run->Run as Java Application), the IDE looks for a main method, and in your case failed to find one. This is analogous to "Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: main."

Please check you have a main method with the correct heading.Then it ought to work.
I agree. Here's the link:
