Hi! I want to code a java script in the terminal, but I don't know how. I use the "VIM" IDE for programming, That's why I need to know how to run it in the terminal. And no, by saying "java script" I didn't meant the javascript programming language, I meant a script written in Java. Your help is appreciated!

Let's call it a Java program or Java code to eliminate any confusion with the language JavaScript.

First, you'll need to compile your code. Then you can run it. If your code is in MyClass.java file, you'd do something like this:

javac MyClass.java
java MyClass

You will need to have a Java Development Kit installed for this.
