How can I read something from keyboard using i/o operations?

I wrote the following code in java using *"oracle Jdeveloper 11g release 2"* platform and i think it's correct, but I have a little problem when I try to execute him, it asks me to introduce a number, and this it's correct, but I don't know how to introduce that number. If i want to write the same code in c or c++ using Visual Studio it's very easy when i want to introduce a number i must run the code and then a console window will appear and then i introduce the number.
Could someone to give me a link at a tutorial about how to use *"oracle Jdeveloper 11g release 2"* when I have to use i/o operations or something useful.

package instante;


public class Read_from_keyboard {
public static void main(String[] args) {
BufferedReader keyboard = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(, 1);
double number_read = 0.0;
String line = "";
try {
System.out.println("Give a number: ");
line = keyboard.readLine();
Double tmpDouble = Double.valueOf(line);
number_read = tmpDouble.doubleValue();
System.out.println("The number is: " + number_read);
} catch (IOException e) {
System.out.println(" Input from keyboard " + e.toString());

Thank you!
