Allow user input in Jdeveloper for Java applications, Using Java Scanner Class to take input from console

Sometimes we have to take input from Keyboard when we use Scanner or BufferedReader class.
and to take input from Jdeveloper we have to change a setting to allow user input in Jdeveloper.

Let's take an example of java.util.Scanner class-

package client;

import java.util.Scanner;

public class UserInput {
    public UserInput() {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println("Please Enter your Name-");
        Scanner sc = new Scanner(;
        String name =;
        System.out.println("Your Name is " + name);


This code requires user to input his name , now to enable user input follow these steps in Jdeveloper IDE
  • Go to “Application” tab and select “Project Properties” in Jdeveloper Menu

  • Go to “Run/Debug profile” and edit default Run Configuration

  • Go to “Tool Setting” and check the box “Allow Program Input” and All Done :)

  • Now run this program and check an additional input box appears on console

Cheers :) Happy Learning
