View Full Version : how to return to command after running a java class

February 14th, 2008, 12:08 AM
so basically in the terminal i want to run a java class multiple times without having to restart the terminal.... which is to say that whenever i run a java class from the terminal the command prompt doesnt return like it does, say, after a bash program finishes executing:

root@comp:#java someclass.java [ENTER]

the program runs but root@comp:# doesnt return

can this be accomplished?? thanks
