You need to create a Java Project first, then add classes to that.
If you're not experienced in Java I strongly advise you NOT to try to learn Eclipse at the same time - you are super-imposing two very large learning curves. Just use a programmer's editor (eg notepad+) and the JDK command line utilities until you have built up some Java skills.

Thank you. I know C and php. I did not know the trick to create java project first. It is working.
