Java basics error

I seen the thread this was answered in but it doesn't work for me. I get this everytime i try to run a code.

treehouse:~/workspace$ java Introductions
Picked up JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m
Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m

How do I fix this.

Can you post a snapshot of your workspace?

Make sure you are compiling your code. the java Introductions only runs your code it doesnt compile it. Try running:

clear && javac Introductions.java && java Introductions

Since I was just asked to answer this: It's fine. Those messages are just informing you that some default settings on the compiler were altered for better performance in Workspaces. These were changed some time after the course was released which is why you don't see them in the video.
