From the "fine" BlueJ installation instructions (http://www.bluej.org/download/install.html):

Quote:
Make sure you have a suitable JDK or J2SDK. The Sun JDK/J2SDK is recommended as it is the most well tested. Currently the "gij" (GNU java interpreter) cannot be used.
Run the installer by executing (from the command shell)
Code:
/path/to/jdk/bin/java -jar bluej-250.jar


... where "/path/to/jdk" should be replaced by the actual path to the JDK.

In the installer, select an installation directory and your JDK directory and install. By default, the installer will install into a directory called "bluej" inside the directory from which you launch it, and it will pick up the JDK location automatically (if it is run correctly according to the instructions above).

In the directory where BlueJ was installed, you will find a file named bluej. This is the launcher script. Execute this script to start BlueJ. For example:

Code:
cd bluej  # change into installation directory
./bluej   # execute the "bluej" launcher script
