How Do I Compile From Source in Windows 7?

#1
I am trying use a program

At the bottom it says "compile from source", but I have no idea how to do that. Can someone please explain it to me step by step. What programs I need to install and everything I need to do.
 


#2
One more post then I can post link...

And it looks like it was created with Netbeans IDE.
IIRC, when you install Netbeans it also installs the Java SE if you don't have it already. So, just install Netbeans and import the project in it.

What do you mean "import the project in it"? I download Netbeans and open the zip file with the Netbeans program? I really have no understanding of this can you please explain everything to me simply. Maybe you look at that site so you can see whats in the zip file and all.
