Step-by-step instructions: how to create an application in the Java programming language

Scroll Down

Online Java programming is a powerful tool for developing various applications that run on different platforms. If you’ve been dreaming of creating your own Java application, this step-by-step guide will help you get started.

1. Learn the basics of Java:

Before you start developing applications in Java, you need to familiarize yourself with the basic concepts of the language. For this, you can use the video lessons offered by the GoMother school. Must understand Java syntax, object-oriented programming, and working with classes and objects.

2. Install the Java Development Kit (JDK):

To start developing applications in Java, you need to install the JDK, which contains all the necessary tools for developing and compiling applications in this language. You can download the JDK for free from the official Java website. Follow the step-by-step instructions to install the JDK on your operating system.

3. Select an integrated development environment (IDE):

There are many IDEs available for developing Java applications. Among the most popular are IntelliJ IDEA, Eclipse, and NetBeans. Choose the IDE that best suits you in terms of functionality and ease of use.

4. Create a new project:

After installing the IDE, open it and create a new project. Set the Java programming language for the project and specify the location of the project files on your computer.

5. Write the application code:

In the created project, you can create new classes and start writing your Java application code. Determine what features and capabilities your application should have and design the corresponding classes and methods. Use Java syntax to create variables, statements, loops, and conditional expressions to implement the functionality you need.

6. Compile and run the application:

After writing the code, you can compile it into an executable file that can be run on your computer. Compilation turns your Java code into machine code that the operating system can understand. After compiling, you can run your application and test its operation.

7. Test and improve the application:

Run your app and check if it works correctly. Debug any bugs or issues that occur during testing. You can use various debugging tools provided by your IDE or external extensions to improve your development process.

This is just a general step-by-step guide to creating an application in the Java programming language. If you want more details and practical examples, it is recommended to study in-depth Java programming courses or video tutorials online. For example, the GoMother school offers Java programming courses where you can gain deeper knowledge and practical skills in Java application development. We provide professionally structured lessons with practical tasks and an individual approach to each student.

Online Java programming courses from the GoMother school offer the following advantages:

  2. Structured course: GoMother’s courses are carefully structured, starting with the basics of Java and gradually progressing to more complex topics. You will receive clear explanations, examples, and tasks that will help you consolidate your knowledge.
  3. Practical approach: GoMother course lessons focus on the practical application of learned concepts. You will have the opportunity to work on real projects and perform tasks that bring you closer to real Java application development.
  4. Community of students: You will receive support and the opportunity to discuss your successes and difficulties with other students of the course. You will be able to learn together, exchange ideas and solve tasks with joint efforts.

Do not delay if you have the desire to create your application in the Java programming language. Learning Java online and taking GoMother courses will give you the knowledge and skills you need to achieve your goal. They will help you understand the basics of the Java language, teach you how to use it effectively to develop applications and provide hands-on experience through working with real-world projects.

Here is a code example for a simple Java application, along with explanations of each step:

// Import the necessary package for working with the graphical interface
import javax. swing.*;

public class SimpleApp {
public static void main(String[] args) {
// Create a window using the JFrame class
JFrame frame = new JFrame(“Simple application”);

// Set the size of the window
frame.setSize(300, 200);

// Set the mode to close the window when clicking on “X”

// Create a text label
JLabel label = new JLabel(“Welcome!”);

// Add a label to the window

// Make the window visible


  1. First of all, the javax.swing package is imported, which provides classes for working with the GUI.
  2. In the SimpleApp class, we have a main method, which is the entry point to the application.
  3. A JFrame object is created that represents the application window. The name of the window is passed in the constructor.
  4. Window sizes are set using the setSize() method. In the example, the dimensions are set to 300 by 200 pixels.
  5. The mode of closing the window is set when clicking on the “X” (cross) in the upper right corner of the window.
  6. Creates a text label (JLabel) that will be displayed in the window. The constructor is passed the text to be displayed.
  7. The label is added to the content of the window using the getContentPane().add() method. getContentPane() returns the window’s content container, and add() adds a component (in this case, a label) to it.
  8. The setVisible(true) method is called, which makes the window visible on the screen.
  9. After writing the code, you can compile it using the Java compiler. Open a command prompt (terminal) and navigate to the directory where your code file is stored. Use the command javac, where is the name of the code file.
  10. After successful compilation, you can run your application using the Java SimpleApp command.
  11. After executing this command, a window with your simple Java application will appear on the screen. In this case, the window will contain a text label with the inscription “Welcome!”.

This is a simple example of a Java application that displays a window with a text label. You can modify it, and add other components and functionality according to your needs.

So, if you want to create a more complex application in the Java programming language, online Java programming is an indispensable tool, and courses from GoMother can help you achieve your goal faster. Don’t doubt your abilities and start learning today to realize your creative ideas and develop your own exciting Java application!
