How to create a Java project in IntelliJ


In the previous tutorial, I have explained how to download and install IntelliJ on Windows. In this tutorial, I will explain about how to create a Java project in IntelliJ.

  1. Open the IntelliJ. It will look as shown below. To create a New Project, click on New Project Icon.

2. Select Project SDK as Java version present on your system and select option as Java. Click on Next button.

3. The next screen provides options to choose Project Template as shown below. Click on the Next Button.

4. I have mentioned Project Name as Java Demo and path where I want to save my project on my computer.

5. Click on the Finish Button to create the project. It will also ask to create the directory as shown below.

6. Click Create button to grant permission. It will launch IDE as shown below.

Now, I have created a new Java Project named as Java Demo. Let me create a new Java Class – HelloWorld.

  1. Expand the Project Hello Word and right-click on the src folder, hover on New Option and click on Java Class Option as shown below.

2. I have provided the Java Filename with the package as shown in below image. Now press Enter Key to create the packages and Java file.

3. It will show a message to Add the File to Git. Depending on your requirement select Add or Cancel. I don’t want to add File to Git, so selected Cancel.

4. I have updated the HelloWorld class to print First Java Class -Hello World on the console as shown in the below image.

5. Now right click on the HelloWorld class file and choose Run HelloWorld.main() Option or press Ctrl + Shift + F10 to compile and execute the program as shown in below image. It will also build the project.

6. The final output of the program will be displayed on the console as shown below.

This is how we can create the Java Demo project to execute our first program in Java – HelloWorld.
