I have a couple of questions?

First I want to ask that if we load java-repl then can we run the javac command or we have to terminate the repl in order to run the javac command? Secondly I have a question that how can we ask the question directly to the trainer for example Craig Dennis directly? This does not mean that I dont trust forum members. And also I am still not getting used to the many services provided by the the team treehouse. Such as Trello, Taco and Github.

Good afternoon!

java-repl is basically a command line tool that allows you to run and test lines of java code one line at a time. You cannot run javac and must terminate the java-repl by pressing Ctrl+C (I believe) to close it out and return to the initial console.

I have seen the teachers view and answer questions in the forum. You may also post your question to the forum and click the "Ask" button next to their name if you see it on the list of people to "Ask to answer."

I hope this finds you well and answers your questions. Happy coding!

Yeah thankyou Jeremiah for your reply. I got the problem solved and it was a silly mistake I had done in the syntax. Also as you said that we have to terminate java-repl for compiling the source code is right. Thank you for the answer.
