Sorry if this is incredibly basic. I've looked and I can't find an answer here but I can't be the only one this is happening to:

I can't get System.out.println to print anything to the Windows command.com console. If I run under Netbeans, the output shows just fine in the output box. But I'm trying to be a good girl and work from the command line using javac. "HelloWorld" code runs without error -- except that nothing is printed!

Does anybody have any idea what I need to tweak to get System.out.println and XP to hold hands?

Thanks.....

Lori

Hi, sure, happy to show you my code. Here it is:

class TestStuff {
public static void main(String [] args) {
String whatToPrint = "Hello Goodbye";
System.out.println(whatToPrint);
}
}

Like I say, it runs fine and under Netbeans, the output shows in the built-in output window no problemo. But using javac from the command line, nothing happens.

Thank you, thank you, thank you if you can help......

Lori.

OK, I think we can head this one off before it goes any further. Dumbo just figured out her mistake -- I was expecting the regular program output to be printed by running the java file via javac. I guess I was a little confused about just what the compiler would do and not do. When I run the jar file, the output is there as expected.....

Thanks anyway!

Lori.
