Java Quick Start

Every application starts with a class name in Java. That class should match the file name.

It’s time to create our first Java file called First.java. You can write the codes in any text editor like notepad.


public class First {

  public static void First(String[] args) {

    System.out.println("Hello From H4C");



The first file should return the message Hello From H4C.

Save this code with a name first.java then open cmd or terminal and run the comman

javac first.java

If no error comes means it’s successfully compiled. Then run this command

java first as shown in the image below
