Command line Java

In a effort to learn Java, how can one enter two numbers from command line user input followed by the addition of the two numbers?  
C:>javac Prog.java
22  <-- User inputs two numbers
4   <-- Program returns the sum of the two numbers.

Other things in Java appear to be easier than command line input.

Ovi,

Could you explain what each line of code above
public static void main(String[] args) does?

//imports classes to have access to IO operations
import java.io.*;

public class test1 {

// method for reading a line from jthe system inputStream. A line means an array of characters terminated with \n
 public static int read() {
   //creates a reader object to read from the inputStream
   BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
  //will hold the readed content
   String line = "";
   try {
     //read a single line
     line = br.readLine();
   } catch(Exception e) {}
   //convert and return the readed string as a int value
   return(Integer.parseInt(line));
 }
 

//method for displaying messages to standard out
 public static void write(String message) {
//just write to system output
   System.out.print(message);
 }

// main method of the class, it specifies that this class is an "executable" one from operating system the command line.
 public static void main(String[] args) {
 //calls to methods for reading and writing
   write("First number: ");
   int n = read();
   write("Second number: ");
   int n1 = read();
   write("Result: " + (n + n1) + "\n");
 }
}
