Can anyone help me with this question or point me in the right direction.

Which program in the JDK can you use to compile a Java class, and what type of output file does this program produce?

TIA and regards.

The program is called "javac" and it produces *.class - bytecode class files. Please use Google next time, as programmers we need good search skills find info ourselves ;)
