    You can only compile your code if you start a project. If you just simply open the editor and start coding away, you will not be able to build it.

    What ekenny said. To start a simple Java stand alone application project:

    1. Select "File -> New Project"
    2. Select "Java -> Java Tool"
    3. Click "Next"
    4. Enter a project name like "MyName"
    5. Click "Finish"
    6. Double click "MyName.java"
    7. Program
    8. Click "Build and Go"
    9. Repeat from 7
