How do I compile this source code...?

Could someone tell me how to compile this code in steps in jcreator. Since when I copy paste this into the jcreator window. I get an error when trying to run it...

"Exception in thread main". Something like that...New to java. Any help will be appreciated.

Ok i got to this link

http://users.telenet.be/artificialintelligence/download/simplechess.java

I save it on to my desktop right and I open it from there. The software on my  desktop is Jcreator. When i compile it i get the message...

Note: C:\Documents and Settings\cjm32\Desktop\simplechess.java uses or overrides a deprecated API.
Note: Recompile with -Xlint:deprecation for details.

Process completed.

When I try running it  I get the message  " Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NosuchmethodError: Main "

Since I'm new to Java i'm guessing i'm compiling it the wrong way. I copied source code online. So it should work. The output should be a chess program. Could someone give me steps on how to do this.

It means that this was written in an older version of Java, it should work fine but it should be rewritten at some point
So your compilation is fine.

Now:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NosuchmethodError: Main
                                                                     ^
--- In the "main" thread, you received an Error    |   "No Such Method" , and the method it is complaining about
     is called "main".

Oh, by the way, watch your case, Java is very case sensitive and the Java programmers are going to assume you
mis-typed everything.

Now, scanning through your code, you probably can tell for yourself that you have methods like
   void setview()
   void setup()
   void getside()
and so on.  In the entire listing there is no method called main.
All java applications require a method main to start, it looks like this:
  public static void main(String args[]) {
  }
You don't have one.

Ok, is the code broken? Absolutely not, in  this case the class named "simplechess" extends Applet, which means this
program is meant to run in a browser as an applet.

So:
1) Compile your code
2) Make a simple web page "test.html"
------------------------ CUT HERE ---------------------------
<html>
<body>
  <h1>Chess Applet</h1>
  <applet code="simpleapplet" height="200" width="200"></applet>
</body>
<html>
------------------------ CUT HERE ---------------------------
3) Place the generated .class files in the same directory as the web page and double click on test.html

Your applet should load fine or you will get run time errors in the browser

as another workaround
you can run applets using appletviewer
to do this
add this comment line to the source code
// <applet code="simpleapplet" height="200" width="200"></applet>

and then open up cmd and type
C:\path> appletviewer simplechess.java

You *could* do it that way, but that would be fairly confusing to understand (my applet is a webpage...?!?)
