Whenever I try to run a code in eclipse it asks me to run it through ant build and when I do it it does not work.

I have the same problem sometimes. I think it means that whatever file you're trying to run is not a valid class and won't run it. What works for me is making a new class and copying my work into the new class.

A couple possibilities:

  1. Maybe your .java file is not inside the src folder?
  2. Maybe you created a generic "Project" instead of a "Java Project" in Eclipse?
  3. Something else that I'm not thinking of right now...
