For running Java programs, you might need to include pre-compiled Jar files when compiling and running your program. To do so, here are the commands you'll need:

  1. Verify file locations
    After adding your Jar files to the workspace, use the upload button and run "ls" to verify that the files are located in the correct folder. If they are located in a subfolder, make sure to note that down when running the next command.

  2. Compile your Java file

    Run

    javac -cp </path/jar1><filename>.java

    to compile your Java file (make sure to replace filename with your file's name). If you have multiple Jar files, you can include them using this command:

    javac -cp </path/jar1>:<path/jar2>:<path/jar3><filename>.java

    Replace the "<path/jar1>" with the location of your Jar files. If they are in a subfolder, make sure to include the subfolder in the path.

  3. Running the compiled Java program
    Run

    java -cp </path/jar1>:. <JavaClass>

    to run the compiled Java program. If you have multiple Jar files, you can include them using this command:

    java -cp </path/jar1>:<path/jar2>:<path/jar3>:. MainClass

    Use the same locations as before when referencing the Jar files.

Hopefully, you were able to successfully compile and execute your Java file. If you encounter an issue with the file not being found, make sure to check that you have the correct locations for the Jar files (the "ls" command may be helpful).
