Not as far as I am aware, all I done was went to file>new>java project>add source>name the source (i name mine anything I want, is this allowed?) (then it creates default package) and gives me the blank script to start briting code on, then i write code and i cant save anything

If there are no modified files, the save button will be disabled, because there's nothing to save. Unsaved buffers will have an asterisk by its name in its tab.
