Eclipse compiles automatically. As you are typing in the code into the editor, the compiler to should be compiler and flagging errors. You just need to run the program -- there is no need to do compilation, as eclipse does it for you.

In order to enable auto compile of your class files(*.java) you need to have 'Build Automatically' option selected.It is available under 'project' menu.

Do you get an error message or are you just looking for a "compile" button? If the former, please post it. If the later, Henry is correct that Eclipse compiles automatically by default. You can also force a recompile through Project --> Clean. (Every once in a while it gets confused on large projects with lots of dependencies.)

Note that we a forum just for questions about IDEs. I'll move this for you.
