In the package explorer view I have:

lessons (java project)
src (source folder)
lessons (package)
lesson1.java (file)



I am trying to run:


public class lessons
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
System.out.println("Hello World");
}
}


But I recieve this message in the console view:

"Exception in thread "main" java.lang.Error: Unresolved compilation problem:
at lessons.lesson1.main(lesson1.java:3)"

How am I supposed to sort/name the files and directory for this to work?

Above you say you have lessen1.java but here that's not what you show.
> public class lessons
It's a bad idea to not follow Java naming conventions, i.e., a class
name should start with an upper case letter.

This generally suggests you have a compile error in your project. You
should see a red "x" marker in the source view in that case.
