If I want to create a class file - I understand that I
1)Create the file and save it with the .java extension
2)The .java file has to be compiled so it then becomes a .class file.
How do I complile the file to become a class file?
Do I place the .java file in the /lib/ dir of the application server?
Sorry for the stupid newbie question

You have to use the javac command to invoke the compiler to turn a .java file into a .class file. (If using Tomcat) you then place the .class file in the lib directory.
