So I need to turn in a 60 page portfolio as a final in a few hours. I have trouble running my programs that I have made in class. This is my first time using jcreator on my home computer because I usually develop basic programs at school on school lab computers that come with jcreator and everything set up.

I downloaded jcreator pro and also downloaded jcreater LE. I click new project and all that good stuff and I have a blank space to work with. I copied and pasted a program that works perfectly fine:

public class Welcome {

public static void main(String[] args){
System.out.println("Welcome to Java");
}


}




I click run and a window pops up. "Set Runtime Configuration". There are tabs with "Run Application" "Run Applet" and "Run Debugger". I haven't seen this thing before so I just click "OK".


A new window pops up, it says "JDK Profile Configuration Wizard". "In Order to run jcreator successfully. You need a recent version of JDK installed in your system. ETC"

I click "NEXT" and "FINISH" and I'm back to my sheet with my program that didn't run. What exactly am I missing to make this run normally?

Do you have a JDK installed? You'll likely want the JDK 6 Update 13.

Never used jcreator though, so I can't offer help otherwise. Sorry.

Edit: Try selecting "Run Application" as your runtime config.

No problem- the JDK (Java Development Kit) provides needed support structure not included with Java IDEs such as a Java compiler, javadoc tools, etc. The JRE (Java Runtime Environment) only contains the tools and libraries to execute Java code that's already been compiled.
