How do we run Hangman on a separate IDE if it requires an answer?

Having these codes in:

public static void main(String[] args) {
    // Your incredible code goes here...
    if (args.length == 0) {
      System.out.println("Usage: java Hangman <answer>");
      System.err.println("answer is required");

How do we put our answer in there after we compile and run the class file if we're using another IDE, like Eclipse for example?

'Coz in other IDEs we just hit the run button and it automatically compiles and run the class.
