hai friends my academic project is developing an editor for java. please tell me the code to compile and execute the java programme.
waiting for ur reply please
thanq

if you are incapable of reading the documentation that comes with the JDK (which will tell you how to compile something) and follow a basic tutorial (linked to from that documentation), what makes you think you can create anything in Java (let alone an IDE, a project usually involving dozens of experienced people and many months or even years of effort)?

I don't in fact think it's an "academic project" at all, sounds more like a homework assignment and you didn't pay attention in class...

hello i have written all the code for creating editor. please see this and i stuck up with compiling and executing the programe

Use code tags next time, nobody wants to look at unindented code.

Aside from using a few classes that the rest of us don't have and so we can't run it, all I really see so far is you've constucted the GUI.

For compiling and running classes, you'll really need to understand how to do it through the command prompt. Look up the docs on the Process and Runtime classes.
