8.6.2 Compiling and Running Files
You can open any java file and compile and run the same using the tool. The options used to compile and run the files are similar to that of the screens. Since there is no intelligence to resolve the build type of the file, you must select it manually from the Build Type menu item. The package name for a file can be set same as the project package or different from the project package name.
