i have installed emacs and java on redhat 9.0, i added export PATH=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.1_01/bin:$Path to the emacs .bash profile, typing in javac in the terminal yeilds a list of compiler commands and switches so i assume i configured emacs corrrectly, i hope. When i used windows i used textpad, emacs is considerably more indepth. I was hope someone could give me three instructions.

1. how to start a new java file
2. how to compile it
3. how to run it

also text coloring and indenting

JDE for Emacs is an addon package that allows you to compile Java code from within Emacs and have a usable error window which displays errors and other compilation information. A blurb from the web site:
# JDEE menu with compile, run, debug, build, browse, project, and help commands
# syntax coloring
# auto indentation
# compile error to source links
# source-level debugging
# source code browsing
# make file support
# automatic code generation
# Java source interpreter (Pat Neimeyer's BeanShell)
I have used it a little bit at university but I'm more comfortable with vim (usually gvim) so that's what I use.
