.java > .class conversion
To be simple, I need to find a program or process of some sort that will convert a file with extension name of .java to .class. All attemps I have made to find a way have either come up empty or simply not worked.
I already have a program that will take .class and convert it to .java, but for whatever reason, not the other way around.
So I would greatly appreciate a fairly simple, or at least well explained way of converting .class > .java or a program that will do it for me.
Making shortcut to start in java source folder
Make a special shortcut for your desktop to start where your .java files are:
Navigate to where the Command Prompt shortcut is
Rightclick on it and select Copy
Go to your desktop rightclick on it and select Paste.
Rightclick on the shortcut just placed and select Properties
Enter the path to your .java files in the Start In: field.
RC and rename to shortcut to remind you of where it goes or whatever
watch for unpredictable shell hooks
Yes, definitely - that is what this discussion group likes to practice on. Beware, I have noted that too often the machine wants to put C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\ in front of important information without telling you. I find that proprietary limits one to the twenty six letters of the iso-latin-1 ascii a-z and will cause things to disappear completly ( or seemingly so )

In any approach, be totally patient. Frustration does not achieve forward study.
