jEdit! What is your classpath?

Noticed that jEdit seems to have its own classpath. It doesn't seem to follow the classpath registered in the autoexec.bat. To do the desired compiling in jEdit, I have to go to Plug ins-->Console-->javac and write the directory path of the jar file(that was registered in the autoexec.bat and which isn't recog by jEdit) in the 'Extension Directory' of the 'Settings' tab (of 'commando'). Another thing I do to remedy the situation is to compile in a DOS Console after doing the code in jEdit. Anyone know how to make jEdit use autoexec.bat's classpath? (posted this in jEdit's community, still no response). Thanks in advance for any comments.

After starting your computer, from a command prompt, when you type SET CLASSPATH and press enter, what gets displayed?

Haven't done these for a while. In win98, the result is SYNTAX ERROR. For win ME, I tried non-windows start up, but couldn't find DOS-start from the options available. Tried tinkering with the options but haven't found way to enable DOS startup.

You'll probably want to start windows normally, and then open a command prompt while windows is running. In Windows 98, this can be done by running "command" through Start->Run... In Windows ME, I think this can be done by running "cmd" through Start->Run...
