How can you run and debug a console application in JDeveloper?

Judging from questions asked here, when I searched the database, you CAN run Java console applications from JDeveloper somehow.

When I run any console applications however, the GUI doesn't seem to give me a chance to enter anything, into the output window.

How can I run it then?

Thanks. Console app running, unable to enter data

By Google I found this:

You need to tell it to indicate you want to allow program input by choosing Project | Default Project Settings and then expand the Configurations | Development | Runner trees and choose  options tab.  Then check "Allow Program Input"

Have you tried it?

I did a keyword search on "Allow Program Input"  based on your suggestion in JDeveloper
help for the latest 11g version, and they kept the text for the checkbox but they put it into a slightly different location in Project Properties. See attached PDF.

If the option is enabled an input box shows up at the bottom of the Log window that
you can bring into focus and type your input while running a console application. Allow-Program-Input-JDeveloper.pdf
