Write and run java program using Sublime Text 2

Sublime Text 2 is one of my Favorite text editor for coding after Geany. This is an awesome and light weight editor. What I loved to share is how to setting ST2 then you can use it to compile and run java programs directly.

Follow these steps below to prove it ūüôā

  1. Firstly, make sure that you already have jdk installed. Or you can download here.
  2. After installing then set the PATH variable on Environment Variables (Right click on My Computer > Properties > Advanced system settings > Environment Variables).
  3. Then go to System variables > Path > add jdk bin directory path. On my laptop is C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_17\bin
  4. Create a bash shell script file runJava.bat :runJava
  5. Next step is setting this bash shell script in the build system of ST2. Open ST2 >¬†Preferences > Browse Packages > go to Java Folder >¬†Open¬†JavaC.sublime-build¬†and replace this line¬†“cmd”: [“javac”, “$file”], with this “cmd”: [“runJava.bat”, “$file”], then save.
  6. Done. Then open your java program using ST2 or write a simple program and click Tools > Build or simplify you can press Ctrl+B.
