Your First Java Program

Here you will learn how to create your first Java program that will print the text

    "Hello World"

Create the following file in a text editor, such as notepad. Do not use an office text editor, such as word.

Add the following text to your file:

     public class first{
            public static void main(String[]args){
            System.out.println("Hello World");

Don't worry what this means, we'll go over it later.

Make sure that a Java complier is installed on your PC.

Save this as "first.txt", open a command prompt, and type


Then type

     java first

With any luck, you will see the following text:

    Hello World.
