I have installed Oracle Sql Developer 1.1.2.25.70 with Java Platform 1.5.0_10 on Fedora 5.

Is it possible to compile and run a *.java file without connecting the Oracle Sql Developer to a database?

If it is possible how do i do this?

I don't really understand your question. You want to compile a .java file in SQL Dev? That's not what the app is for...  Also, SQL Dev doesn't come with the JDK, just the JRE.

So you mean you can't develop java applications in Oracle Sql Developer.

Oracle Sql Developer needs JDK preinstalled. before installing Sql Developer.

If you have the JDK preinstalled, you don't *need* SQL Developer to compile .java files. You can use notepad for that, in the worst case. SQL Developer is to be used for database development, running queries, etc.

http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/database/sql_developer/index.html

***
 Oracle SQL Developer is a free graphical tool for database development. With SQL Developer, you can browse database objects, run SQL statements and SQL scripts, and edit and debug PL/SQL statements. You can also run any number of provided reports, as well as create and save your own. SQL Developer enhances productivity and simplifies your database development tasks.
****

However, if you *really* want to use SQL Dev for java compilation, you can customize behavior under Tools/Preferences.
- Tools/External Tools/New then enter the path to the javac.exe compiler you want to use

You can definitely customize SQL Dev to recognize keywords, Tools/Preferences/Code Editor/Syntax Colors

I addes javac as an external tool.

It shows in the Tools menu as well as the context menu on right clicking.

It compiles the java program well.

However, when i run the .java program, it raises the error:

"The target cannot be started because there is no active project"

/usr/java/jre1.5.0_10/bin/java as an external tool too.

However, when i run Writer2.java class file, i get the following error.
/usr/java/jre1.5.0_10/bin/java /mnt/win/linux_bkup/scripts/java/Writer2
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: /mnt/win/linux_bkup/scripts/java/Writer2

Modify the classpath in Fedora or Sql Developer.
You mean i should change the classpath in Sql Developer to the resemble classpath in Fedora?

well, you can use it as a parameter directly in SQL Dev:

java -cp <your_classpath> (don't forget to include the current directory ".")
