I installed Eclipse newly on E: drive at my computer and the workspace location is F:\java-exp. the jdk is located at the following path F:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_02. I am trying to run a new program using Eclipse and am getting the following error "selection does not contain a main type". even .class file is not created in the output folder. can you please help me on this as I am sure that this must be some setup/configuration issue. Also paradon me if I am using a wrong forum for posting this question.
