    I suspect that you have another project selected as the 'Main' project. Right click on the project you are trying to run - then select the option 'Set as main project'. If you have more than one class with a 'main' method, you can select which one should run by right clicking on the project, selecting 'properties', selecting 'Run' and the clicking the browse button next to 'Main Class:' and selecting your main class. If both of these steps have been set to the correct project/file respectively, then clicking the Play (Run Main Project) button will result in the correct program running.

    Default OR

    you could just simply run the program from the command prompt window, since its nothing complex.

    Or try something else like eclipse, its possible your just reverting to a default program and just need to set open the correct one from the menu.
