  • ive this by using .net console. To use it within vb.net you can use shell command and for displaying errors just jump the javac output to a temp. file and open that file inside your application.

  • well

         use the shell command as follows

    first create a batch file


     open "filename.txt" for output as #1

     print #1,javac filename.java

    name   "filename.txt" as "filename.bat"

    close #1



    now execute this batch file






    hope this works
