    Default Jcreator Compile/Execute option

    At school whenever I wanted to compile and execute all i had to do is go under the Build tab....

    However, I downloaded Jcreator LE at home and all it has under the Build option is build project/file

    so where can I compile/execute then? I did download JDK and the doc

    You can take my advice or leave it, but I recommend NetBeans or Eclipse. They are use by the majority of developers here, and suit the needs of most people from beginner to advanced. With both tools, you can build projects and execute them with a single click - NetBeans in particular auto compiles on the fly (very convenient feature).

    I agree with quad you should probably learn the power tools, it pays to learn Eclipse and/or Netbeans.

    But to answer your question. also there's build and run tabs up top

    I guess ill try eclipse....seing how so many people are using it....is it compatible with Jcreater? cause the school uses it =.="

    anyhow i was talking about Clicking the build button on the the top and it showing like 5 options....as in build project, build file, compile, execute, and some other option.

    im missing the compile and execute....

    When i press Run....it shows in the general output not the >Java Virtual machine<

    is it compatible with Jcreater?
    Yes and no. Java is java, so any java editor (even textedit/notepad) are technically 'compatible'. At the same time, can jcreater open a netbeans/eclipse project or vice versa? Probably not. But that doesn't really matter since generally what you turn in is just your source code and or your compiled class files, which either method will produce.

    I used eclipse for 3 or 4 years, and loved it, and then I tried netbeans 6.x and realized what I had been missing. Its the little things all over netbeans that make it really a pleasure to use. Either tool is just fine though!

    I tried downloading Netbeans and followed the instructions....

    but when i open it i couldn't add new file....I could open it and edit it...but i couldn't run it...the option for it was grey as in you couldn't press it...

    i could create a new project though....

    the file i tried opening it was .java

    EDIT: nvm...I see why. Jcreater is Totally different from Netbeans, and better. Hopefully teacher will let me use it instead

    yea they do take a bit of getting used to for instance you can't just open an old existing project you did in jcreator and have it run(you can with eclipse, and i think some others) but Jcreator is not widely used so netbeans have not implemented that and probably never will.

    to do what you are trying to do you will need to create a new project in netbeans and then "import" files to that project! simply opening files within netbeans does not assign it to the project, I don't think... I use Eclipse a lot more than netbeans.

    But try going through the tutorials I believe this is the problem but I may be wrong.
