I wanted to automate everything so that there's no switching between
windows, and the solution I came up with is a bit different than what
Ian Watson suggested, though it is basically a modified version of his
code.

(1) Create a Bean Shell macro file called rundo.bsh in your jEdit
macro directory. On my PC, the directory is C:\Documents and
Settings\Dimitriy V. Masterov\.jedit\macros\. Rundo.bsh will save the
current do-file and then run the whole thing. Here's the code:


/** This Bean Shell jEdit script
(a) Saves the current do-file
(b) Runs it using Stata and an AutoIt script called rundo.exe

AutoIt is available at http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/.
See F. Huebler's Script 1 at
http://huebler.info/2005/20050310_Stata_editor.html for details on
rundo.exe **/

rundo() {
	// Get the name of the current do-file
      filename = buffer.getPath();

      // Save the do-file
      buffer.save(view,null,true);

      // Runs the file. You many need to change the location of
rundo.exe to suit your PC
      String command="C:\\Program Files\\Scripts\\rundo.exe " + "\""
+ filename + "\"";
      exec(command);
}

rundo();


(2) To run only the highlighted part of the do-file, create another
script called rundolines.bsh:


/** This Bean Shell jEdit script runs the highlighted part of a Stata
do-file using an AutoIt script called rundo.exe.

AutoIt is available at http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/.
See F. Huebler's Script 1 at
http://huebler.info/2005/20050310_Stata_editor.html for details on
rundo.exe **/

rundolines() {
	// Copy selected text
	String text = textArea.getSelectedText();
	
	// Create a temp file
	File temp = File.createTempFile("dofilelines", ".do");
	
       // Delete temp file when program exits.
       temp.deleteOnExit();
	
       // Write to temp file
       BufferedWriter out = new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter(temp));
       out.write(text);
       out.close();
	
	// Run the temporary file in Stata
	String command="C:\\Program Files\\Scripts\\rundo.exe " + "\"" + temp + "\"";
	exec(command);
}

rundolines();


(3) To map F8 and F9 to the scripts, go to Utilities, Global Options,
Shortcuts, pick
Macros from the drop down menu, select the script name, and assign the
shortcut key.
