Java Compiler!

At home, I use editplus to run my java programs. But when I installed it at school (and set up the user tools), The program won't run. This is the error I get -

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Grapher
Exception in thread "main"

It works fine when I run it at home...
I can't remember the exact way I have it configured at home. So what I need is simply a reliable way to compile and execute a java program from a shareware\freeware program. Or else a working configuration for the tools in Editplus.

PS - the school uses the freeware JCreator LE which doesn't seem to be executing for some reason.

hello, click tools --> configure user tools

menutext: ---javac--- (or something like that)
initial directory:$(FileDir)

menutext: ---java--- (or something like that)
command: java
argument: $(FileNameNoExt)
initial directory:$(FileNameNoExt)

i think your schools editplus was configured just right. after downloading no java tools are installed....let me know if that worked for you :-)
I agree. Here's the link:
