You are correct that Java is not included with Geany, you have to 
install your preferred Java toolchain and runtime yourself. Once you've 
done that and ensured the location containing the `javac` and `java` 
executables is in your `%PATH%` environment variable, Geany's default 
build commands should "just work". If you don't put the Java binaries in 
your `PATH` variable, you will have to edit Geany's build commands to 
specify the full absolute path to those tools.
