Console shows terminated message in eclipse

Whenever I run a program in eclipse whose configuration is

Eclipse Java EE IDE for Web Developers.

I get a blank console with the following terminated message

enter image description here

Is there something wrong with the build path?

My code is a basic hello world application

import java.lang.*;
public class Connection {

* @param args
public static void main(String[] args) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
System.out.println("Hello World");


Answer Source

Terminated means that the execution (of your program, or tool, ...) is complete and the JVM exited. It is not an indication that anything has gone wrong in itself.

Whether your program exits with no error, or with a nasty stack trace, you'll see this message.

Normally, if a program has sent anything to system.out or System.err, you would see it in the console, though.
