1: don't know, but see below.
  • R-click the name of the class with the main method (on the left pane)
  • Click "run as"
  • Click whatever doesn't say "java application"; I think it's "show run dialog".
  • Click the "arguments" tab.
  • Put your command-line arguments into the upper box labelled "command-line arguments" or similar.
  • You might try -ea and -da in the next box labelled "VM arguments" for enabling and disabling assertions.
  • Click "run" at the lower right.
  • Voila!

    1. set your compiler settings
    right click in package explorer--> build path --> configure build path
    --> java compiler

    2.right click on your java file --> runas --> run...
    enter your arguments details in 'arguments' tab

    I agree. Here's the link:
