followed your first advice, i got my file with a java icon on it. i double click it, and nothing happens? only possible thing that might be wrong, that i can see is maybe the java program i use to launch isent the right? i use "java platform se binary" you got any suggestions?

actually something does happen really fast. a cmd opens and closes really fast. captured what it said with a screen shot : Error: could not find or load main class c:\users\nico\desktop\var1.jar

btw thanks for your reply. exporting it, so obvious. i just thought i saved it, and tryed to run it as the saved file from eclipse.

as your application is a commandline application the correct method would be to run it from the commandline (The application is supposed to exit once its printed hello world and for most commandline applications this is a good thing (as they tend to be linked together by shellscripts and artificially pausing them restricts this functionality)

try the command: java hallo1 from the directory that holds the .class file. (you can open a command prompt from windows by running cmd.exe (WindowsButton + R , type cmd.exe , press enter) , use the cd command to change directory to the one holding your class file.

As an alternative, useful only while you're learning and not for real commandline apps you can do something to pause the execution of the application after it has printed hello world:

One method is to read some input:

public class hallo1 {
/**
* @param args
*/
public static void main(String[] args) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
System.out.print("Hello world");
System.out.print("Press [Return] to exit");
}
}
