Suppose i have a class definition like this :

class CheckSyntax{
int var1=10;
}

this text data is available in stream.........

Can we compile the text through javac on a fly without saving the file.

More specific :
Suppose through a form post method somebody send me that text (class definition ) . So my Question is
Q1...can we compile that text as a normal class.
Q2...Further i want to catch hold of errors also. and show them as response.

Can anybody help me.

Unlikely. Look at the javac documentation. It clearly states that the input must be a file. Of course, creating temporary files is a common and simple programming task.


Q2...Further i want to catch hold of errors also. and show them as response.

Look at the above link, the section called "PROGRAMMATIC INTERFACE"
