open a terminal window if you want to use a command line

If that's correct, then the following command at the command line should return something. If not, download the JDK. Don't use anything other than a text editor to begin with or you'll have an extra learning curve
which javac

Open in new window

Opening it is not an issue. hello.java is a text file. You need to compile it and run it. For that you need a jdk

Go to the Application > Utilities > Terminal
go to the respective folder using cd command and
Now type > pico hello.java
It would open the java file in editor mode.


Hope this helps you.
