I am new to Eclipse and Java. I have just finished a very simple program that runs in Eclipse. That's great, but how do I actually make use of this program? More specifically, what steps do I have to take to use the program written in Eclipse in a web browser window? (or standalone .exe)

I have searched Google and already installed a couple of useless plug-ins to try and make this work and I am getting very frustrated with it. A straight-forward answer would make my day.

Thank you

Brett,

For a stand-alone Java program, one that runs from the command line, you
must create a runnable JAR. See:

For a web application, that's a whole different kettle of fish. If
you've only just finished a very simple program in Java, there's a bit
of road in front of you. There are innumerable frameworks and options,
too many to be written about in one place. To get a simple taste of what
lies in the future, here's a step-by-step article on JSP in Tomcat using
Eclipse. JSP is very ancient technology, but it's kind of representative:

However, whatever you do, this is a good forum for questions about
Eclipse. javaranch.com and stackoverflow.com are good forums for
questions about Java.

Hope this helps, best of luck to you.
