How do I compile my Java project? The "Build" option is missing from the right-click menu of my Project Explorer and I can't find a compile button.

Builds are controlled from the top-level Project menu. Why were you expecting it in the right-click menu?

Examine the Project menu. You'll see that, by default, Build
Automatically is checked. Each time you make a change to a Java file,
Eclipse rebuilds it into a .class file. To force the entire project to
be rebuilt, whether it needs it or not, select Project -> Clean.

Is this what you're looking for?
