does that mean that you have not tried to compile and execute the program yet?

and yes,

to compile the java program

use : javac filename.java

now after successful compilation we get a class file called filename.class

to execute the program

use: java filename



hope this helps

To compile a programe you use "% javac filename.java", yes, my question is where exactly should I write this (% javac filename.java)? Is it at the command prompt?

Hey Vincent, I simply want to know if you were able to run your programs from the command Line(Also known as Command Prompt), I guess I got that right.
If you are still having any problems, I am offering to help you, you can add me on skype id: jacobxzx, I will be glad to help.
This is NO adds, I am an scjp/ocp student and my offer to assist will simply keep me in form towards my preparations for the exmas. Thank you.
