Crash Course on NetBeans


Well-known member
Man I am having a difficult time learning how to use it..

I just want to run something simple to see if it works..

1  // This is a simple Java program.
3  public class Simple
4  {
5    public static void main(String[] args)
6    {
7        System.out.println("Programming is great fun!");
8    }
9  }
What exactly do you want to know? I'm sure there are far more experienced programmers here than me, but I use NetBeans quite a bit, and while it's a bit clunky at first, it's pretty straight-forward to use.

You've got a functional script there, just needs to be compiled and run (click the green button that looks like "play", or right click > Run File).
