Hi!
I am a newcomer eager to learn Java using Eclipse.
I use Knoppix, a tweaked Debian Linux flavour.
My Eclipse details is:
--------------------------------------------------------
Eclipse Platform
Version: 3.8.0
Build id: I20120502-2000
(c) Copyright Eclipse contributors and others 2000, 2012. All rights reserved.
----------------------------------------------------------
I am not in a position to upgrade Eclipse or Knoppix.

I tried to use the Eclipse "Hello World" tutorial, but failed to create the main() method.

The direction is:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
The next step is to create a new class. In the main toolbar again, click on the New Java Class button (or the link below). If not already specified, select HelloWorld/src as the source folder. Enter HelloWorld for the class name, select the checkbox to create the main() method, then click Finish.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
My query:
Which Checkbox? Attached snapshot.
index.php/fa/29828/0/
I tried the Help also. I searched with "main() method" but did not find anything.
May be because it is a free and Open Source is it not well-written?
Eager for some help!
Regards

Under the line "Which method stubs would you like to" it is the first one "public static void main(String[] args)"

I can see where someone completely new to Java might not be able to make the association. Once you get some experience, you'll be able to recognize the main method right away.

Ah! Yes, well said!
In c language we used to call the main() a function.
Thank you very much!
In the meanwhile, I also registered with coderanch to learn coding for java via a plain text processor and console. I am connecting that thread with this one, so that I grow parallely both ways, via Eclipse and via console.
