Testing our Environment – part 4

To run the program from eclipse first select from the menu bar ‘Run-Run Configurations’.  This opens the configurations dialog box for running applications.

Select the Java Application ‘BuildAnApp1’ and from there click the ‘Run’ button at the bottom of the dialog box.  There is a much simpler method of running the code but we will use this dialog box later to configure our run options so this is an opportunity to introduce this method.

Pressing the run button closes the dialog box.  The program should write to the standard output device which within Eclipse is the console.  The console by default is one of the tabs at the bottom of the eclipse application window.
