If errors occur, they will be reported on the command-line screen and the program won't be executed.

If your program is named something other than hello , (which it typically would be) substitute the new name for the word hello where it appears twice in the batchfile.

Don't delete the pause command

The pause command causes the command-line window to stay on the screen until you dismiss it by pressing a key on the keyboard. You will need to examine the contents of the window if there are errorswhen you attempt to compile and run your program, so don't delete the pause command.

Translate to other operating systems

The format of the batch file in Listing 1 is a Windows format. If you are using a different operating system, you will need to translate theinformation in Listing 1 into the correct format for your operating system.

A test program

The test program in Listing 2 can be used to confirm that Java is properly installed on your computer and that you can successfully compile and executeJava programs.

Listing 2 . A test program.
class hello { public static void main(String[]args){ System.out.println("Hello World");}//end main }//end class


Copy the code shown in Listing 2 into a text file named hello.java and store in an empty folder somewhere on your disk.

Create a batch file named hello.bat containing the text shown in Listing 1 and store that file in the same folder as the file named hello.java .

Execute the batch file.

If everything is working, a command-line screen should open and display the following text:

Hello World Press any key to continue . . .


If that happens, you have just written, compiled and executed your first Java program.


If that doesn't happen, you need to go back to the installation instructions and see if you can determine why the JDK isn't properly installed.

If you get an error message similar to the following, that probably means that you didn't set the path environment variable correctly.

'javac' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Beyond that, I can't provide much advice in the way of troubleshooting hints.
