Could not load main method

Is it something wrong with the work space , as when I am trying to run the code I always get the error saying that "Could not find or load main class Introductions.java ".

I tried this code on IDE which is working fine.

Does anyone else faced this issue , and if so how you solved that

Hi Marius.

Have you saved and compiled your code?

Try this on the console: javac Introductions.java && java Introductions

Make sure you have saved your code, then try the above.

Let me know how you get on.


I've forked your Workspace snapshot and it works fine here.

Hi Steve,

Got it sorted , when running command "java Introductions" I was adding .java at the end which was causing problem.

Thanks for response
