Re: I can compile but cannot run file1.class in Linux.

I suspect that what you have made is a Java applet. Applets must run in the
context of an application, most generally a browser. Put your file1.class
file in a directory to which you have access with a web server and write a
simple web page, say file1.html, with the following in it, in addition to
the usual required HTML markup.

<applet code="file1.class" width=400 height=300>

You can make the width and height whatever you want them to be. If your
applet needs parameters, you'll need to put them inbetween these tags as
something like...

<param name="whatever1" value="xxx">
<param name="whatever2" value="yyy">

These aren't real names and values, but I'm sure you get the idea. Access
the page you've created with a java-enabled browser (most are these days)
and you should see your applet run.

There are a number of good books on Java. I recommend "Java in a Nutshell",
published by O'Reilly & Associates. Java is pretty complex. You'll need
additional documentation to understand how to use it properly.
