I just downloaded Forte for Java and I cant figure out how to run applications from it to test. I use to use Textpad for my Java programs but I liked the interface of Forte better.
I guess I have to set up some project or something but I always comes back with an error. For example when I type in the following:
class test {
public static void main(String args[]) {
System.out.println("Hello World");
}
}
It compiles it fine, and if I go out into dos and run it it runs, but i cant figure out how to run it within the Forte IDE which would be a lot more convient.
I get the following error:

Tom,
I can't be real specific here because at the moment I cannot get Forte to load... but you have to check that Forte is pointing to your jdk files correctly. Did you download the version with or without the JDK ?
(hope I am thinking of the correct IDE )

Hi,
Check whether u have placed ur .java file in the forte4j/development directory or u have made some other directory as a file system in the explorer of forte4j. If u have ur file system settings right then u can run the compiled java file by pressing the green arrow button in the menu buttons. U don't even have to compile the java file if u press the green button as it first compiles it and then automatically runs it.
bye

I like Forte a lot, but it did take some tries to get used to how it uses it's own file system for each project. If you can compile the program from within Forte, I would think that it would be able to compile and run too. If you are compiling from without Forte, then you will need to make sure that the directory where you have decided to save your .java file is "mounted" inside the Forte project's filesystem. It is really just pointing the tool to the correct directory to look in, and you can do it by choosing "mount filesystem" inside one of the menus. You can also use this feature to mount .jar files.
Hope this helps in some way,
OP
