12.8.1 Getting started with Haxe/Java

To get started with Haxe/Java, create a new folder and save this class as Main.hx.

    Multi-line comments for documentation.
class Main {
    static public function main():Void {
        // Single line comment
        trace("Hello World");

To compile Haxe to Java we need two obvious prerequisites installed:

Run the following from the command line:

haxe --java bin --main Main

Another possibility is to create and run (double-click) a file called compile.hxml. In this example the hxml-file should be in the same directory as the example class.

--java bin
--main Main

The compiler outputs in the given bin-folder, which contains the generated sources / .jar files which prints the traced message when you execute it.

To execute, run the following command:

java -jar bin/Main.jar
