What will happen at Compile Time with Java Program

When you try to compile the .java file with the java compiler then it converts into a file that is not independent of operating system and this file is called bytecode. 
You can find the Bytecode filename with .class extension. Always Bytecode filename matches with your main class name.

The below image explains for compile time

What happens at Runtime

When your code is successfully compiled. You can run this bytecode file in any OS it will show the same output. Every device has its own JVM preinstalled it helps to run the bytecode and interpret the file.

To run the java program successfully. You have to follow 
  1. Open Command Prompt(cmd.exe).

  3. Type javac command to compile your java file.

Run Java Program in Terminal

Note: Save your text file with .java extension and Your name of java file must be same as the class name.

A class name first letter always starts with Uppercase. These are some rules to write java code. 

Java is case sensitive language, i.e. Codeamy and codeamy both are different

What will happen if you can save your java source code file with any other name, not as class name. 

No, issue if you save your filename differently with the class name. Then to compile you use but for executing use the main classname.

  1. To compile java code:       javac 
  2. To execute compile code:  java Helloworld 
different java file name than class name
