Creating the Saluton Program
The first Java program that you create will display a traditional greeting from the world of computer science: “Saluton mondo!”
To prepare for the first programming project in NetBeans, if you haven’t already done so, create a new project called Java24 by following these steps:
- Choose the menu command File, New Project. The New Project dialog opens.
- Choose the project category Java and the project type Java Application and then click Next.
- Enter Java24 as the project’s name. (If you created a project with this name previously, you see the error message “Project folder already exists and is not empty.”)
- Deselect the Create Main Class check box.
- Click Finish.
The Java24 project is created in its own folder. You can use this project for the Java programs you write as you progress through this book.
