    Default Does anyone here use Jedit?

    I'm experimenting with Jedit and I like it but I'm trying to figure something out. I've searched the Web and YouTube and really can't find what I'm looking for. I can compile and run my Java programs fine by using the menus at the top. But I would also like to be able to type in the old fashioned commands at the prompt at the bottom of the console:

    javac Hello.java

    java Hello

    But when I type those in I get an error message "file not found". Someone told me that I need to set the Console working directory. Okay. But he didn't tell me how. I've been looking at all the options and everything thinking there must be a way to set the working directory so the console can find my .java file and compile and run it. But I'm turning up zilch.

    So if anybody on this forum is familiar with Jedit and can provide some instructions on how to do this please post.

    To the original poster, welcome to the forum, and I hope your question gets answered, but I do request that if you cross-post a question you provide links to the other cross-posts. Nobody likes duplicating work that's already been done. Thanks for your cooperation.

    Here is the original question I asked which can be found here:

    A few questions - jEdit Community

    The guy that responded didn't really help all that much except for when he told me of an automatic method you can use by downloading a bash file. So I even tried that. I downloaded the changedirectory.bsh file and placed it in the Macros folder. I then found another guy that discussed what sounded like the same topic. I followed his directions
    and created a shortcut key for my macro.

    But at the prompt I typed the shortcut key that I assigned to the macro but it still did not work. I find this really bizarre that it is so hard to compile and run a Java file down there at the console.

    Surely there must be other people that have conquered this problem.
