running your project

Before submitting a project as final you should always make sure it runs as intended. For a project to be able to run, at least one of the classes will have to have a main method. In order to run your project, make sure your editor is focused on the file containing the main method and use the Run button . You can simply run your program as is or run it with command line arguments.

console window

The console window will show you all output generated by your program. If you double-click on the console window title bar, you will maximize the size of the window. Another double-click will return it to its original size. Moreover, the window will also allow you to input information. Simply click in the window and start typing. When the program is finished, it will display the word terminated in the window title bar. If your program is stuck or you would like to terminate it for another reason, you can right-click in the console window and select terminate or click on the red stop button.
